Women's SAILING Champions League Update

Women's J/70 sailing league (Kiel, Germany)- The preparations for the first Women’s SAILING Champions League are in full swing. From June 16 to 18, the best women European sailing teams will compete at Kiel Week in Germany. A number of women’s teams representing clubs from across Europe have already registered.

At this innovative sailing event presented by Audi, each National Sailing League can appoint two clubs that will be invited to the event. Additionally, there will be wild cards for other yacht clubs assigned by the SAILING Champions League Steering Committee.

Laura Fischer, member of the Deutscher Touring Yacht Club from Germany, told us how excited their team is to sail at this special event:

“We are happy to be part of the first-ever Women’s SAILING Champions League. With Anna Seidl, Mareike Weber, Monika Linder, Linda Weber, and myself, we put together a young, but at the same time very experienced team. We are curious about the other women crews from our European competitors and we are looking forward to exciting races in Kiel!”

Each team will compete with a four to five-person crew. The event will be sailed in matched J/70 one-design sailboats and the racing area will be in the famous Kiel Bay in the Baltic Sea.

For fans without the opportunity to visit the event, there will be a livestream for one whole day of racing available on Facebook, YouTube, and also here on our website.  For more Women’s SAILING Champions League regatta information Add to Flipboard Magazine.
