It is with deep sadness that we announce that Rolf Kellenberger (5.5 SUI 226) passed away unexpectedly on May 21st 2018.
The international 5.5m-Fleet is missing an eager sailor and great sportsman who looked after his beloved Shaolin like no other did. He always kept the boat in impeccable condition and was very proud, of his decently branded boat with the unique red stripe on a grey background.
Rolf and his crew traveled long ways to take part in many national and international regattas during his 14 years of 5.5m racing. Not only did he like the competitiveness of 5.5m racing, but also the fine dinners, great locations and good friends that his boat took him to.
We wish him, from the bottom of our hearts, that he will find his peace on his last journey.
Our thoughts are with his wife Olga and their two wonderful daughters Lara and Carla.
