After having finished a perfectly organised Euro Cup with great sailing at good conditions, I want to advert to the next International Canoe World Championship in 2011
It will be held from July 23rd - 30th 2011
at Travemünde during the Travmünde Week and the sailing venue will be the Neustädter Bucht. Racing will probably be from 24th to 30th. The course, where we will sail will not be very far out. If you check out the course map at http://www.travemuender-woche.net/index.phtml?mNavID=1.100&sNavID=1653.60&La=1
, you can find course beach and hotel. On one of these we will have our championship. Raceofficer will be the same, who run our last Euro Cup some years ago, who is very professional and knows the canoes.
We will have races for IC/ICOD/AC announced. Numbers will tell...Area:
Boats will be placed on the beach. For those coming with a trailer, a tractor will pull the trailers onto the beach and back. For those coming with a container, they will be placed on a secured parking area in 5 min walking distance to the beach. On the beach we will have a big tent for measurement and as a meeting point for the canoe sailors.
