Round Palagruža Cannonball 2014 7th EDITION of INTERNATIONAL NON-STOP OFFSHORE REGATTA

Triumph for Raimund Reissner the winner of the toughest race in the Adriatic


Raimund Reissner, who is participating Round Palagruža Cannonball since 2008, was finally rewarded by winning the toughest race at the Adriatic Sea. His six-man crew on Bavaria 42 match “Cape Town” managed to finish the race of almost 400 nautical miles in a little more than 75 hours.

The sensation number one:

In the past the class of Bavaria 42match was declared to be slower than Bavaria 40CS class, but Reissner and co-skipper Wolfgang Singer achieved the overall victory with Bavaria 42match. This may be due to the fact that Reissner have never changed classes from the beginning. His loyalty is finally rewarded!

The sensation number two:

The best B40S crew “Long Island”, with skipper Thomas Reisinger and Gernot Graller - Kettler finished second. The team was registered under the name "The New". The rookie crew winning the class in RPC is something really remarkable. Especially, given the extremely difficult conditions at the RPC 2014.

The sensation number three:

Reisinger took over the first place of B40S class within last few miles from two – handed crew of B40C “Allegro” with skippers Martin Hartl and Harald Wolf. The duo had dared to compete in pair against the other six or eight-man crews and even led for a long period of the race. Hartl has already won the RPC three times in the past. The second place in 2014 B40C class and third place overall, with two hand crew, however, is a true masterpiece. The pilot project turned out to be very successful. The organizer will add separate two-hand class for RPC 2015.
