Welcome to the Finn Masters European Championship
it’s a pleasure for us to organize the European Championship 2019 for such experienced senior sailors of the great Finn class. And we warmly invite you to our beautiful city. Schwerin is surrounded by 12 lakes and is know for it’s fairytalelike castle which is seemingly floating on the waves of Lake Schwerin.
The race area will be located at that lake, which is the second biggest lake of northern Germany. If you haven’t been sailing on this wonderful lake, you can now feel happy to get the chance to do so. It’s known as a very good and challenging sailing area. Big enough for fair and mostly free winds, but still with some surprising wind shifts because of the curved shore line. Due to the nearby baltic sea and great water depth in some areas there can be comparatively high waves for a lake. Even in summer the sea breeze from the baltic sea reaches to the lake fequently with fresh winds.
There are several accommodations in town you can choose from for your stay in Schwerin. For further information contact the tourist information.
Furthermore we can offer some places for tents and caravans close to the sailing club. You can make your reservation for camping at the registration form.
Because of limited space in our sailing club there can only be a maximum of 150 starters for the championship. The registration form will be open from the 1st of May.
If you like a warm up at the Lake Schwerin you are also invited to our „Herbst-Cup“ from 7th till 8th September. The regatta is also open for 20qm and 15 qm dinghy cruiser. You will find further information and the registration form on our website.
