Setting Sail in a Single-Handed Boat

Baumüller Sponsors Nuremberg’s Yoris Yacht Club Regatta on the Brombachsee

Safe maneuvering and a good feel for the wind and weather: At the IDM International German Championships on the Großer Brombachsee near Nuremberg, young sailors from the Europe Class will be battling it out from October 3rd through 7th 2018. The rankings regatta is being held in accordance with the guidelines set down by the German Sailing Association for this class of boat. The organizer is the YCN Noris Yachting Club, together with the parents of the young sailors from the region. This year too, Baumüller is sponsoring the international sporting event for which around 80 boats have registered.IDM SegelregattaIt is mainly young sailors who are battling it out in the ranking regatta on the Großer Brombachsee / Picture: Noris Yacht Club

“We love supporting young sportsmen and women, as well as our region as a venue for this very special event. Sailing calls for in-depth expertise, the right strategy and the implementation of that strategy with sound maneuvers, a sensible appraisal of the conditions such as the wind and weather, and fast and flexible action. All of these are characteristics that our company also identifies with”, says Andreas Baumüller, Managing Partner of the Baumüller Group.

The Europe Class is a class of single-handed boat primarily sailed by young people and on board which there is only one person. The small and agile skiffs can achieve considerable speeds even in light winds, giving the sailors the opportunity to constantly optimize the speed of their boat. In 2018, alongside Elina and Simon Schieback, Anna-Lena Dietrich and Julian Königer make up the four young people taking part in the Europe Class from the YCN. Alongside the youth rankings, the regatta on Großer Brombachsee also features a women’s and champions’ ranking.
