For the very first AAR Workshop on 7 September 2016 around 70 interested sailors from all kinds of backgrounds joined in at the NRVs clubhouse in Hamburg/Germany. They listened to a presentation given by race officer Stefan Kunstmann about the programme, the route, organisational issues, requirements for participation and the plans of a transfer from Germany to the starting point on the Canary Islands by means of a collective cruise.
Many questions were asked, ideas tossed around, networks expanded and plans made. That's the spirit - Be part of the story!
