Hamburg is renowned for its classic German architecture and gardens, spectacular lakes, gracious northern German hospitality and delicious international cuisine. As a crossroads for trade throughout history, Hamburg's seaport brings in goods and international flavors from around the world. Mix that in with an enormous Scandinavian influence over time and you have an extraordinary mix of peoples who have a love for the sea and a desire to enjoy sailing with family and friends-- one might even call it a tradition amongst Hamburg's seafarers!
Debuting for the first time in Germany at the Hamburg Boatshow will be the hot J/70 one-design speedster.
