On the way to the regatta capsize near Glücksburg yacht harbor, the cutter "Fiasko" on the way to the regatta. Five sailors were rescued.
At the end of the rum regatt, everyone agreed: It had never been so cold in the 26-year history of the classic car event. Nevertheless, the traditional meeting of the many old sailors was a success. Contrary to catastrophic weather forecasts, it remained dry for long stretches.
Actors from the Niederdeutsche Bühne performed their play "Piratenschiff" on the Ewer "Hans" to scare away prices. Organizer Martin Schulz was satisfied with the response from the audience. "You feel better involved in the run-up to the play," he is sure.
The culture award also went to the green "Pippilotta" thanks to the participation of the original first Cologne pirates. The rescuers of the DLRG, who, together with two traditional sailors, had rescued the crew of the "fiasco", received 15 three-liter rum bottles. The crew of the "Fiasko" had to be satisfied with the guardian angel award, the picture "The praying hands" by Dürer. For the rest of the fleet there was scrap (first place), rum (second place), potatoes and a sewing box or a folding table.
