Gusts of up to 33 knots of wind took the sailors in their optimists, who also sailed out their state youth championship, lasers and 29ers on the penultimate weekend in August. "Hardly any crew was spared in the 29ers, many overturned and in some cases did not make it to the finish line in time," said race director Jan-Niklas Czekal from the Strande Yacht Club. But on land it was also more stormy than usual:
"The event was of course clearly under the sign of Corona," said Andreas Schubert, youth manager of the organizing Kiel Yacht Club, who was supported by over 80 volunteers from the ranks of the parents, from the club and friendly clubs to meet the requirements. " With the Strander KÜZ, the organizers have shown that you can host a sailing event even under Corona conditions, "said race director Jan-Niklas Czekala.
