F18 European Tour, Stage 4: Travemünder Woche!

The sailing week of Travemünde has been the second largest regatta in Germany for many years. The Number of participants is close to the numbers of Kiel Week and there are a lot more common elements between those two events as the organising authority is the same. The concept is simple and succesfull: take a public festival and mix it with competitive sailing and you will get a lot of fun out of it!

The area around the city of Lübeck is one of the main bases of the german F18 fleet, around 30 teams are expected to enter the race which is always one of the highlights in our season.

Location/ Accomodation: The host club invites all catamaran sailors and their guests to stay at a location at the very mouth of the river „Trave“ and all race areas called „Mövenstein“. Boats and trailers will find space on this large area which is mainly grass.

For navigation systems the location of the boat park/camping: Kaiserallee 40, 23570 Lübeck

Camping may also be permitted on site, however the beautiful camping site close to the shore is in walking distance to the boat park and all sanitary installations. Camping fees range from 5€ (tent under 5m) to 15€ (caravan over 5m) per night.

There are a lot of appartments for rent during the week. For more information check:
