The preparations for the very first Women’s SAILING Champions League are in full swing. From June 16 to 18 the best female European sailing teams will compete at Kiel Week in Germany. The first clubs already registered.
At this innovative sailing event presented by Audi, each National Sailing League can appoint two clubs who 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 German club Deutscher Touring Yacht Club, 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 female 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 J/70 boats and the racing area will be 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.
