BALLAD Main Regatta Event 2014 - Kieler Woche

Post by Liese » Mon Mar 31, 2014 10:12 am

Hi all,
another year - another Main Race Event & another try to get some international fleet together :!:

BALLAD KIELER WOCHE TRAILER

4 years ago we started in Germany to get at least for one regatta a year a stronger fleet together than it is usual today.
Therefore we started to define a 'Main Event' for the following season, that owners - not focused on racing in the 1st degree - can focus on only one date and can start arrange crew, holidays and transport etc.
For Germany it was quite successful with 3 years in a row a ONE DESIGN Group at the Kieler Woche Welcome Race - 2 races with medium distances.

Once more the German Ballad Club would like to invite all Ballads to take part in the "Welcome-Race" of the Kieler Woche on the weekend 21st and 22nd of June 2014. It is a distance race from Kiel to Eckernförde and from Eckernförde to Kiel on the next day. We enjoyed the races and a special party in Eckernförde very much and would like to meet YOU this year.

NOTICE OF RACE

Please follow the Ballad.de Homepage / Kieler Woche
and the Ballad.de Kieler Woche Race Thread

Good Winds to all Ballad Skippers and their crews!
Hope to see you at Kiel!

Good show! Have fun, everybody. If it is a downwind start like last year, ten Ballads with their giant spinnakers should be a great thing to see.:)

Unfortunately no Downwind from start.
But at least we have some good shots :-)

Enjoy:
2014 Welcome Race
And from last years:
2013 Welcoem Race
2012 Welcome race

Strolch won each single race and the overall event.

Challenge the german Ballads and save the timne for 2015!
