Promotion time - steps 2 & 3

Following the well visited "hanseboot" boat show in Hamburg, the German Class Association was preparing for Berlin and the local "boat & fun" boat show.

Still, the sunny forecast and wind from SE force 3, offered a chance - in 6°C air temps - to be test sailed 5.5 SUI 227 "CinqueCinque" in comparison to 5.5 GER 42 "BEK", on the Alster Lake in Hamburg.

Telling it to the public


The next generation

The hanseboot boat show is at halftime now and seems to be - after several years with diminishing participation of exhibitors and visitors - returning to good acceptance.

This can also be seen on the stand of the German 5.5m Class Association. The first weekend did already have many seriously interested visitors. Test sailing sessions for new potential crew members have been taken note of and the particular features of the exhibited boats (GER 42, SUI 225 & SUI 227) could be explained to many active regatta sailors.

As in many previous years, the German 5.5m Class Association has, with the helping hands of many sailor friends, stepped up a boatshow representation for the 5.5m Class.
