From 17 to 19 September 2021, a total of 15 teams met for the regatta as part of the adh-Trophy sailing on Lake Starnberg. These included teams from the ZHS, the Hanover University of Applied Sciences, the University of Bochum, the University of Konstanz and Frankfurt, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and two boats from Hamburg. 8 teams sailed in the class with spi, the remaining 7 in the class without spi. By the way: pirate dinghies were also sailed.
Despite the weather, we were well prepared for all eventualities.
On Friday everyone had the opportunity to seal themselves in and familiarize themselves with the pirate dinghies.
From Saturday the sun was shining over the imperial, Bavarian sky. A good omen. For our sailors there was a wonderful panorama of the mountains, including the Zugspitze at the southern end of Lake Starnberg. In the afternoon the necessary wind came up and two races could be sailed. The teams were rewarded with a picturesque sunset at the end of the day.
On Sunday there was - for a good start to the day - a decent veal sausage breakfast. Further races could take place strengthened. It was a close decision. Who would take home the trophy?
... of the last trophy in Hanover 2019, the team from the Ruhr-Uni Bochum, was also able to prevail in the Spinnaker Group in 2021. The CAU Kiel women's team won the class without spinnaker. Since the two women from Kiel also had the best placements in the overall ranking of both groups, the trophy went to the University of Kiel this year. Congratulations from the ZHS team!
To defend the university championship, the Kiel women will have the longest journey in 2022, since the University Sports Constance already announced its willingness to hold the Trophy 2022 on Lake Constance at Bodensee. We are excited and would like to be back again.
All of this would not have been possible without the many, countless, voluntary helpers - namely sailing instructors from the ZHS and the USC. We were also greatly supported by LaSelva with a delicious tasting of organic Tuscan food and MarineStore2000 with sponsored prizes for the first three teams in each class. Our deep gratitude goes to everyone who made this sailing trophy so fantastic!
