57th Vaurien World Championship – 2018 in Travemünde, Germany

The Vaurien World Championship 2018 will be sailed in Travemünde, Germany, from July 21 – 28 as part of the 129th Travemünder Woche.

We call the World Championship 2018 the „Project 100“. The goal is to have a fleet of one hundred Vaurien. To get there, every nation need to be present and to bring one more boat than usual. Let’s do it. It will be great PR.

All official information, such as Notice of Race, Sailing instructions, inscription, accomodation, will be made available on the website of the Travemünder Woche at http://www.travemuender-woche.com .

This site provides some additional information and previews for Vaurien sailors. We will add more information as the event gets closer, so come back frequently!

Camping area and boat park will be at the Grünstrand. It is used only by the Vaurien and Flying Juniour class.
The camping can be booked here.

They call it „parking space“ but it is the right place, just choose the right category at the bottom of the page.

Camping will be grouped by class and nation. Our camping ground is the „Grünstrand“.

Apartments and hotels are available near by but should be booked as early as possible, because the championship takes place during the main holiday season!

Additional information

  • The Travemünder Woche is a multi-class event, so there will be many more classes and sailors around. The main events in 2018 are the Vaurien World Championship and the Flying Junior European Championship.
  • The Vaurien Class will share the course with the Flying Junior. To accomodate two classes, the course will be a trapezoidal course with inner loop and outer loop (same as during the Sneek World Championship 2015).
  • Due to weather uncertainties, racing will be scheduled for every day without a layday. The propability of a day without races is high, so we will most propably get a day off somehow.
  • The races on the last day (Saturday) will be sailed on the SAP media course just in front of the beach. All boats will be GPS-tracked and there will be live TV and commentary on large screens on the beach. The course will be an up-and-down course and will be used for the Vaurien Class alone.

And more …

To get a good impression of the venue, have look at this video from the 2016 RS Championships. The RS classes were using the same camping, boat park and racing area as we will.
