Watch out sailing friends!
Of course there are numerous sailing regattas for young and old, e. g. for "Opti children" on "Optimist" boats, for youngsters on modern "Laser Bahia" dinghies as well as for the old hands on a wide variety of sailing dinghies, catamarans and keelboats.
But there is also a lot on offer for newcomers and those interested in sailing - the offers range from hands-on days and trial sailing to the regatta of the Central German Business Captains and open days at various sailing clubs. Even historic boats such as the traditional cutter "Glück Auf" are used and can be used by the public for a ride. Windsurfing also plays an important role - there will be demonstrations and taster sessions on this, as well as on related sports such as wingsurfing and kiteboarding.
An important focus of the events this year is once again the Leipzig region with the Neuseenland, for example with regattas and trial sailing on Lake Cospuden, also with sailing demonstrations on Lake Zwenkau including capsize training and participation of the DLRG.
Numerous regions in the wider area are also actively involved, such as Upper Lusatia with an international youth sailing camp at Lake Berzdorf and with traditional regattas at Lake Geierswald and Lake Bärwald, the Vogtland region with a training camp at the Pöhl Dam, the Elbe region around Dresden with a training tour as far as the Czech Republic, or lakes such as the Goitzsche in Saxony-Anhalt and the Bleiloch Dam in Thuringia with corresponding regattas and Events.
Information on the program items can be found on the Internet and, of course, at the participating clubs.
