The "coat of arms of Bremen III" in the ice
Have you been on an award-winning sailing trip? The sailing comradeship Das Wappen von Bremen e. V. (SKWB) is accepting applications for interesting and unusual trips for the 2015 Ocean Sailing Awards.
Every year, five traditional prizes are awarded for special sailing achievements at the SKWB deep-sea sailing evening in Bremen's town hall. The awards are given to the best journeys in terms of seamanship, sailing, navigation and companionship, in the opinion of the award committee.
Nowhere is teamwork more important than on demanding offshore trips
The applications must be for a team trip in a compact time window, solo trips are excluded. "We are looking for sailing trips with challenges in a manageable time frame, which should also include non-stop passages and night trips," says Jan Helms, chairman of the sailing comradeship price committee. Awards can be given to trips to distant regions such as the polar seas and the South Atlantic, but also to crews who take special trips to the North and Baltic Seas. Other events to be emphasized are also included in the rating. In the long-distance journey, the four hiking prizes, the "Golden Compass", the "Silver Globe", the "Tanj Cup" and the "Franz Perlia Youth Seafaring Prize" are awarded. The "Rolf Schmidt Memorial Prize" is awarded for the best performance in the sea regatta category.
The SKWB prices have a long tradition
An informal short application to [email protected] or via the application mask is initially sufficient, a more detailed description of the trip may then be requested by the price committee. Applications received after September 21 can be considered for the evaluation in 2016. Further details can be found on the association's website under the heading of ocean-going sailing prices.
