Sailing with up to 130 km/h is not possible? Yes, it is! At the Landyachting World Championship you can expect thrilling races in different classes of yachts. The rules are simple: Who finishes first on a parcour of obstacles made of water streams and sandbanks will win a race; to sail against the wind is practically not possible. As long as wind, weather and the surface conditions allow, several races  will be sailed per class.
The races of the class Miniyacht will take between 5 and 15 minutes. The larger classes will sail for 25-45 minutes each.
Races will take place on up to three courses on the sandbank south of the swimming area „Bad“ and on the plate north of „Bad“.
Attention: Please maintain distance with your family and your dog and stay above the drift line!
