Bank von Bremen wins 440 nm Kiel to Sandhamn Race

bvb_crew"The wind conditions were actually more stable than predicted", reported Marten Schirge, skipper of the german J/V 52 youth yacht "Bank von Bremen". The crew of the Segelkameradschaft "Das Wappen von Bremen" felt sailing in the the baltic sea this year more like sailing in the caribean.

They were even able to watch the worldcup game Germany against Argentina during a phase of calm winds close to Bornholm. Their first ship home arrival at Sandhamn was celebrated together with Shakti and Haspa Hamburg on Monday morning 5th July with two kegs of beer. Congratulations!
