German Hanse "Minnic" successful at Palma Vela
The Hanse 430 comp "Minnic" is in her third racing-season still a successful cruiser-racer. After a second place at the Copa del Rey 2008 und very good results at German Northsea-Week (1st overall Cuxhaven-Heligoland-Race) and a 1st and a 2nd while Kiel Week in 2009, all sailed under ORC I measurement, now Minnic-owner Eiken Albers from Berlin brought back his boat to Mallorca.
With the Spanish RI-rating (Rating International) "Minnic" managed at Palma Vela Regatta from from 16th to 18th of April a 2nd place overall in class RI 1. After that success, sailed in difficult light- to medium winds, the owner now is rethinking his decision, to sell the boat, have a year off and come back with a new project.
"I wanted to have a rest and start again with a new boat. But now I am again a big fan of this really nice cruiser-racer", so a lucky skipper after the price giving at Real Club Nautico de Palma. HanseYachts congratulates this engaged owner!
