Built by Hakes Marine in New Zealand, this JV52 will be skippered by Johan Schultz, a sailor in his mid-twenties. It fits the brief of the boat’s owner, Hamburg Verein Seafaring, whose focus is to give young sailors an opportunity to sail and race offshore. To prepare, the crew recently contested the Round Bornholm Race in the Baltic Sea. Haspa Hamburg is supported by Hamburg’s Haspa Bank in Germany and her crew are looking forward to the competition the 628 nautical mile Rolex Sydney will provide them.
