  After the Second World War there were still about 6 International Twelves sailing in Lübeck and the class produced many well known and successful sailors, but subsequently the class died out. It was re-introduced to the Lübecker Sailing Club in 1983 when Peter Stülcken imported a Dutch built GRP boat

In 1986 the '12-Fuß-Dinghy-Flotte Nord' was founded with just four dinghies.

Two years later the Lübecker fleet had grown to eleven boats and by 1989 another three dinghies had joined the fleet which was now starting to spread to adjacent clubs. Since then progress has been continuous and there are now approximately 30 International Twelve Foot Dinghies sailing in northern Germany and a handfull in other parts of the country.
