The 68th edition of 60 nautical miles long distance regatta on Lake Constance is a significant challenge for the Seascape crews. 400 boats expected on the starting line, night sailing and lake conditions will provide for adrenaline and a proper portion of excellent regatta atmosphere. Solid navigation and the right nose for the decisive winds will be the prerequisites for a successful, i.e. fast Rund-Um (rounding). But then the sunset behind the white peaks of Swiss Alps and sunrise that will find you in the middle of the lake are the ones that won’t leave you indifferent. Oh, have we mentioned all the people who know how to be unforgiving adversaries and a good company at the same time? Is there anything else?
We are planning some pre-event activities and demo sailing for all interested parties. More information will follow soon. The Seascape14 is also coming for you to try.
Boats coming from elsewhere do not require a license from the Lake Constance, and the skipper does not need a Bodensee license, only a regular and valid sailing license, whether domestic or foreign. This has been clarified with the Landratsamt Friedrichshafen and the Wasserschutzpolizei.
