A mix of sailing regatta, festival and entertainment
Travemünder Woche 2020 streicht die Segel
Travemünder Woche is striking sails for 2020. All efforts to find a modified version for the sailing and festival week during the Corona crisis had to be abandoned. With the decision of the state government to prohibit all major events up to 31 August, the alternatives to the original date had been reduced to only one date. However, the option of a Travemünde week from 3 to 11 October proved to be unsustainable. In consultation with the City of Lübeck, the partners and TW co-organizers and after feedback from the sailing classes, the 131st Travemuende Week has therefore been cancelled.
Thanks to their long-standing partners and equipment suppliers, such as boot Düsseldorf, who accompany the event, the organisers of Travemünde Week ensure that the international guests get their money's worth. The organisers have built up a trusting relationship with the sponsors in recent years and can rely on good cooperation.
Travemünde Week Reception at boot Düsseldorf
Every year in January, this can be seen when friends and sponsors gather at boot Düsseldorf for a Travemünde Week reception at the trade fair stand and indulge in culinary, visual and acoustic delicacies in anticipation of the upcoming sailing spectacle.
Location advantage Travemünde
Lübeck Bay is one of the largest German regatta areas. From Neustadt to Wismar there is a continuous sea area. Every year between 2000 and 3000 sailors and surfers take advantage of the fascination and opportunities that the Lübeck Bay offers here at Travemünde Week as one of the largest water sports events in the world.
The sailing area Lübeck Bay
The Lübeck Bay area offers unique conditions for top-class sport: the highest measured current speed measures 16 centimetres per second and thus has no influence on sailing. The prevailing wind direction is from west to south-west during the sailing season from May to October. The flat coastline around Lübeck Bay has no terrain elevations that could influence air movements. With 90% probability, the wind is above two Beaufort, but below seven Beaufort - the average wind speed is between three and four Beaufort. In other words: perfect sailing conditions!
Good logistics on land
Travemünde also has excellent infrastructure on land: Right in the centre of Travemünde is a state-of-the-art regatta station with numerous communication facilities, with rooms for race committee, jury, coaches and press. Around the regatta station there are several hundred water and land berths, which are available for race events. The regattas at sea are supported by our own ships and state-of-the-art communication technology.
