The 128. Travemuende Week was not for the faint-hearted from the perspective of the sports directors. Light winds, strong gusts, thunderstorm warnings and over and over again heavy rain were changing rapidly with good sailing conditions. It has been a challenge to find the right weather window for setting up the race courses in this scenario. A difficult task, that was mastered extraordinarily well. Apart from some few exceptions, the whole planned program could be offered for the boat classes. The overall race director Brian Schweder and the sports director Jens Kath can look back at the proud number of 380 races with 824 crews and 1500 sailors participating in total, sailing around 50,000 nautical miles, when adding up all boats. The planning for the upcoming Travemuende Weeks has already started. So it has already been confirmed, that the Vauriens will be having their World Championship and the Flying Juniors their European Championship in the Bay of Luebeck at the 129. Travemuende Week (20. until 29. July 2018).
