125th TW: A week of top-class sailing

07/28/2014 10:28:00

On the morning of the final day of the Travemuender Woche 2014, rain and calm approached the Bay of Lübeck. It was a stark contrast to a perfect week of sailing with eight days of sunshine, wind and waves, which was more than adequate for the 125th anniversary. In this respect, the short-cut final also fitted into the picture – the sun appeared again at midday – otherwise the sailors and organisers would not have wanted it to come to an end. Walter Mielke, who is passing over the reins as head of the regatta to Brian Schweder after 17 years, and his right-hand man Gerd Gurgel could look back on the week happily, even though only the Nacra 17 class headed out onto the water today.

"Simply a perfect week" – World champions crowned at the Travemuender Woche and Daniela Schadt as a guest on the fan mile today

07/27/2014 10:05:00

One more day – just one more day – is left of the 125th Travemuender Woche. "We had planned to celebrate this year's TW in a very special way. And we succeeded. It had been a long time since we had so many championships on the water and there were also many highlights on the shore. This includes the daily laser and fire show from the Passat, the combination of sport and culture with the concert of the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival and the SAP Trave Races, which have shown top-quality sailing, particularly in the races of the 1st National Sailing League on Monday. That was the best advertisement for the sport of sailing – particularly here in Travemünde. I would once again like to hint at the possible Olympic bid for the Hanseatic City of Lübeck. Simply a perfect week", summarised Dierk Faust, chairman of the Lübeck Yacht Club.

07/25/2014 09:20:00

The deciding race in the German Championships got off to a start half-way through the Travemuender Woche.

The organisers and athletes came back onto optimum water conditions for the deciding races of the TW after the stormy winds at the beginning of the week disrupted the race schedule. In addition to the Contenders, the Kielzugvögel also said goodbye to the 125th Travemuender Woche.

He will be able to sleep well tonight. The mayor of Kiel Ulf Kämpfer is not nervous about making his debut in the duel for the "Volksbank Rotspon Cup” at the Travemuender Woche on Wednesday, 23rd July 2014 at 12 noon. “I'm looking forward to a great day and being able to experience and enjoy the much acclaimed atmosphere of the Travemuender Woche", says Kämpfer. The mayor of Kiel also has another first to overcome. He has never sailed on the historical A+R yachts of the 8 KR class. He is nevertheless looking forward to it and doing everything to win: "In addition to a very competent team, I will hopefully have the famous beginner's luck." Kämpfer does not have a vast amount of sailing experience. So far he has only been an "occasional but enthusiastic crew member."

07/22/2014 09:26:00

The wind picked up sharply and most sailors of the Travemuender Woche paused for breath. On the third day of sailing at one of the most fantastic regattas in the world, the wind was just too good for the athletes and organisers. With gusts of up to 30 knots and a wave of up to two and a half metres high in the Bay of Lübeck, the race director Walter Mielke decided at 1 p.m. to call off all further day races in nine out of eleven classes. Only the Dyas class started its International German Championship and the Kielzugvögel used the "indoor" race courses in the protected Pötenitzer Wiek. In addition, the 1st National Sailing League completed its final day of the second competition of the season on the SAP Media Race Course.
