KNS register 1920 has not separate listed sH31 “Sans Souci”. Technical data corresponds with Johan Ankers design of 1917. This indicates that sH31 has become sH33 laid down in 1918 and launched in 1919. 
In 1920 she is converted to the new R-rule of 1919 with racing sail no. 8N4.
Seilas yachting magazine of July 7th 1920 reports that “Rocambole” (new) by Jens Beckmann, Tönsberg is sold to Mrs. Emma Jespersen, Tönsberg.
KNS summary of races in 1920 reports in the 8mR(new) Class, “Rocambole” with owner Emma Jespersen, Tönsberg. Among the other contenders are “Sildra” with owner J.A.Jespersen, Tönsberg, “Verano II” owned by Eilert Sundt, Kristiania and “Trolljo III” owned by Gunnar Rabbe, Kristiania. Racing sail no’s in 1920: 8N2 “Sildra”, 8N4 “Rocambole”, 8N11 “Verano II”, 8N17 “Trolljo III”.
