Xenia, GER 6544 Baltic Champion 2011!

Bremerhaven- based Xp 44 "Xenia" to take the 2011 Baltic Circuit. A deserved victory after an unforeseen and therefore even more impressive first season on the new boat.

It's done! After hours of calculation, the 2011 Baltic Circuit racing series is happy to announce its 2011 overall champion: Congratulations to the crew of "Xenia", being led by Owner Dr. Bernhardt Buchwald. When "Xenia" made her first appearance on the race course off Heligoland, nobody could have imagined how well the crew handled the brand- new boat. After claiming several victories, showing a great performance off Heligoland for sure made a good start for Buchwalds Team, but taking the overall victory in the German Offshore Championships off Kiel during the Kiel Week impressively underlined the capability of the crew.

After sailing a tremendous season, "Xenia" now steps in line with previous Baltic Circuit Winners such as last years winner H.M. King Harald of Norway. The 2011 Baltic Circuit Racing Series proved to be at the very heart of the sport of offshore- sailing in the baltic area. With "Valpuri", a 1985 built Inferno 31 coming in second overall, competing in the Baltic Circuit can be fun and rewarding for any type of boat! The price for the winning team will be handed to the "Xenia"- Crew at the Price- Giving Ceremony of the 2011 Baltic Circuit, beeing held at the Hamburg Town Hall the 23. of March 2012. Please don't miss to check back as further information on the Price- Giving Ceremony will be published via this site very soon!
