The Travemuende Week has been a central event for years, if it is about testing new formats of the sailing sport, opening new ways of medialization and demonstrating how to handle wind and waves to a broad public. The tracking of yachts and dinghies, the TV medialization, the show races on the Trave and the sailing league format, which is a fixed part of the Travemuende Week since the beginning of the National Sailing League, are just some examples. And the Travemuende Week remains innovative in its 129. year. Two premieres are being celebrated, the hosting of World, European and German Championships - and of course the classics like the offshore races, the show races and the duel of the mayors against their competitors from politics are a set part of the sailing event from 20. until 29. July.
