What a Boating Weekend: Information, practical
training, entertainment and new boats. All this and
more was on offer, with best weather, during the
first „Bavaria Baltic Weekend“, which took place
in the Marina Hohe Düne in Warnemünde with just
under 200 visitors.
The catamaran training for women was especially
popular and fully booked already days before the
event. The training was made on a Bavaria Nautitech
Open 40 by the likeable circumnavigator Mareike
Guhr. After three hours packed solid with manoeuvres
and many helpful hints, the female sailors were elated
and happy: “Mareike is the perfect trainer. She has
so much experience and a fantastic way to pass this
on”, said one participant. “And it is great that Bavaria
Yachts enabled us to take this training!”
Other hands-on training sessions on the water were
made by sailing instructor Richard Jeske (from Well
Sailing in Neustadt/Holstein), especially regarding
harbour manoeuvres. “Many owners and charter
clients took part who were a little bit unsure about
harbour manoeuvring, or who simply wanted to pick
up a few helpful hints”, said Richard Jeske.
Other workshops were held on dry land in the marina’s
boat shed, topics included rig trim and navigation
with the chart plotter. Jörg Tapken for B&G
and Simrad and Jonas Renken from Segelwerkstatt
Warnemünde held the workshops in a relaxed and
cheerful manner, passing on valuable know-how to
the attending boat owners.
Whoever wanted to take a good look at new Bavaria
models could do so at leisure in Hohe Düne, where
the Bavaria Dealers AP Yachting, Nordostsee Yachten,
Imex-Yachting and Allert Marin presented three sailing
yachts and one motor boat.
On Saturday night, all guests of the Bavaria Baltic
Weekend enjoyed the VIP-Night with fine food and
