Strategy and Tactic

Philipp and Julian Autenrieth: "The best tactic and strategy decide the outcome, while the boat and the conditions are more or less the same for everyone.  Whoever can make the best out of these conditions, wins."


Sailing Champions League

„The format that has been working for football, also works for sailing"

Joachim Hellmich

Joachim Hellmich: "The clubs have to show their best performance" is the basic idea says projektmanager of the German Segel-Bundesliga (DSBL) GmbH. The most successful sailings clubs compete against each other for a whole season in several events in the SAILING Champions League. Each club sets up a team with its best sailors. To win the title and the sought-after trophy, the clubs have to show their best performance. Short races, standardized boats, a standardized course and a competition between the best and prestigious sailing clubs in the world guarantee sailing as its best! The format that has been working for football for years, also works for sailing: An international club competition generating a lot of media attention and something clubs, sailors and fans can identify with!
