MUSTO Skiff German Open 2016
End of July the MUSTO Skiffs will celebrate the climax of the German racing season – the German Open 2016 at Travemunder Woche. The event, which besides the German Open also counts as Eurocup and part of the German Racing Circuit, expects 35-40 skiffs, among them the best of the European community and the majority of the German fleet.
Almost two months after the Worlds in French Carnac the MUSTO Skiffs can prove themselves at 4 racing days (July 28 – 31) on the bay of Travemunde. Iver Ahlmann will work hard to defend last year’s title against European champion Frithjof Schwerdt and hopefully the strong competition from Great Britain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Norway and Russia.
Travemunder Woche with its more than one million visitors and more than 2000 competitors from all over the world will be a perfect setting for the German Open. Highlights will be the show racing on river Trave on Saturday night and the grand finale on the TV course on Sunday. All races will be accompanied by our class photographer Sven Lamprecht (segel-fotografie.de). A welcome evening on the four-master “Passat” on Friday night completes the program for the MUSTO Skiffs.
