We introduce ourselves
The German Sailing Association (DSV), founded in 1888, is the federation of German sailing and surfing clubs, regional sailing associations and class associations, as well as other sailing organizations. As such, it promotes sailing on sea and inland waters, on land and on ice, for adults and young people, as a popular and regatta sport. The association takes measures for the use, the development and the protection of water surfaces and shore areas and it provides for consumer protection as well as a comprehensive representation of the sailing sport in the public.
The Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) has entrusted the DSV with the examination and issuing of spot boat licences and radio certificates.
The DSV represents the interests of its members at home and abroad as a top sports federation in the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB), in the world sailing federation World Sailing (WS), in the Alliance Internationale de Tourisme (AIT) and as an expert advisor to the state in the federal and state governments.
