A particularly magical attraction at boot is traditionally the stage of the Sailing Center. The Sailing Center presents the whole world of sailing and offers top-class lectures by ocean sailors, regatta participants and around-the-world sailors. Expert and experience reports, excitingly narrated and prepared, will take you on a journey into the fascinating world of sailing.
The charismatic single-handed sailor and Vendée Globe participant Pip Hare sailed her way into the hearts of the fans in 2021 and will report on her further plans for 2024 at boot. Another highlight will be the live broadcast from Cape Verde to the Sailing Center in Hall 15, where Robert Stanjek will be in front of the camera directly after the first leg of The Ocean Race from Alicante to the Cape Verde Islands. The 2014 Olympic sixth place finisher has since switched to offshore sailing and is competing in a world race for the first time in The Ocean Race. Together with Jens Kuphal, Philip Kasüske, Annie Lush and Benjamin Dutreux, they are sailing as a crew on Dutreux's boat in the race on the world's oceans.
A look around the exhibition halls makes the sailing fan’s heart beat faster. Amel, Arcona Najad, Bavaria, Bénéteau, Contest, Dufour, Elan, Faurby, Grand Soleil, Hallberg Rassy, Sirena, Solaris, Sunbeam, Wauquiez, among others, are on board with their fleets and a wide range of products.
In the sailing halls, the very special flair that unites the sportsmen and women will once again be evident. Everyone is welcome here. Whether dinghies or the large yachts from Nautor's Swan, CNB and Oyster, monohulls or multihulls from Bali, Excess, Lagoon and Quorning, in Halls 15 and 16 the dream of sailing will come true.
