Wednesday regatta for canoe sailors
Description of the Wednesday Regatta for Canoeists
As part of Canoe Sailing Week 2023, we sail the Wednesday Regatta. The Wednesday regatta takes place in many places and is a fixed event among sailors. Here on the Strelasund in Stralsund or Stahlbrode, regattas are also regularly sailed on Wednesdays.
We sail the Wednesday regatta as part of the canoe sailing week with small boats. It is specially designed for kayaks, canoes or dinghies. Dare you! We do not sail according to Yardstick. If you know the dodging rules, that’s good. You have a great opportunity to compete with others and see where you stand. The sporting idea comes automatically when several boats sail together, true to the motto “two boats are one regatta”. But it is not the most important thing.

The course is set according to the current weather conditions, so we sail for about two hours. We start off the beach upwind and the finish is on the same course in the other direction. During the helmsmen’s briefing you will get the exact sailing instructions for the course. We will use the fairway buoys on the Strelasund as course markers.
Who can take part?
All small sailing boats (under 6m in length) can take part. There are no further restrictions.
If you don’t have any competition sailing experience, then come to the preparation. From 24.7.-27.7. em² offers an intensive training for canoe sailors. There we will also go into the specifics of regatta sailing.
