Like Captain Bligh after the legendary mutiny on the "Bounty", Pieske sailed in an open sloop over 5,000 nautical miles from Tongnach Timor. His report in the Hamburg Museum of Ethnology is the highlight of the biennial cruising day of the cruiser department of the German Sailing Association.
In the morning, the general meetings of the club of the cruiser department (CKA) and the cruiser department itself are traditionally on the agenda. At 2 p.m. Wolfgang Valentin, head of the Hanseatic Yacht School of the DHH in Glücksburg, will present his wide-ranging training program for blue water sailors. Motto of the public lecture: "You never stop learning while sailing." This is followed by Pieske's report "Bounty Bay - In the wake of Captain Bligh", which should be given an informative and exciting framework by the large Polynesian department of the museum. In the evening, the cruiser department holds the awards ceremony for its 2005 cruising competition.
Small bonus for all those interested: The museum visit is free for all participants on Cruising Day.
