Super Sail Sylt (31th July - 2th August 2015)
The German Hobie Cat 16 Regatta with a big beach party, live music and campfire on the Saturday evening.
60 Seamiles off Sylt (25th July - 26th July 2015)
Competitors in the Sylt Catamaran Club’s long distance regatta race in one of the North Sea’s most challenging sailing environments. 30 to 40 catamarans start from the East Beach around 1 pm and race the length of the island to List. Depending on wind strength, these fast double hull vessels can complete the distance in 2 to 4 hours.
The first tricky manoeuvre is off Westerland, where the cats have to pass between the tide gauge and the shore. From there they race past Wenningstedt and Kampen to the “Ellenbogen” (“elbow”). Having circumnavigated this northern tip of the island, they suddenly find calm waters as they approach the harbour at List, before landing on the beach at List Servicemen’s Club. Everyone parties that evening on Hörnum’s east beach, but not for too long! For the race starts again in List at 10 a.m. next morning! The race finishes back at Hörnum west 2 - 4 hours later (depending on wind). The east beach is a good vantage point from which to watch the final stages of the race.
