Every year in January, boot Düsseldorf, the leading international water sports trade fair, plays host to numerous exhibitors and visitors from all over the world.
In addition, boot Düssseldorf supports a variety of projects and events in various water sports activities - sailing, canoeing, SUP or the Ocean Film Tour - throughout the year.
Supported Regatta Series & Leagues
Super Sail Tour
The Super Sail Tour is a series of events in which sailors get their money's worth and spectators can experience the fascination of sailing. Whether off Sylt or Scharbeutz, Grömitz or Kellenhusen, the most attractive holiday resorts on the North and Baltic Sea provide appropriate settings for challenging events, in which boot Düsseldorf is involved with two crews of its own.
What started as a revolutionary regatta concept in sailing a few years ago has developed into a permanent fixture for sailing fans: the German Sailing League! On several weekends during the boating season, sailing teams from the best yacht clubs in Germany compete on J/70 boats in a series of fleet races and determine the champion of German clubs.
With the support of boot Düsseldorf, "Paddling is Fun!" offers those interested a first introduction to canoeing. Holidaymakers at the coast and lakes all over Germany can experience paddling at first hand. In July and August the project crew is touring up and down the country with kayaks, canoes and SUP boards to get people out on the water on the campaign days.
Since 2015 boot Düsseldorf has been offering the International OCEAN FILM TOUR a forum in the Water Pixel World. In daily screenings, a best-of selection of previous ocean adventures and water sports films is presented. In talks with the film tour team, visitors have the opportunity to get the latest information about the upcoming tour.
The German Freestyle Battles are a series of contests in the "New School" of windsurfing, "Freestyle". In this discipline competing surfers present breathtaking tricks on shallow water mostly without waves. In 2019 boot Düsseldorf will be a partner of this event series for the first time!
Sailing is a fantastic sport with great pictures and emotions. No doubt about it. The Norddeutsche Regattaverein in the media city of Hamburg is doing a lot to ensure that sailing gets more publicity. That's why it has been organising the Media Cup on the Alster since 2017 in order to get more media people on board for this task. Now boot Düsseldorf is also a partner!
