The nearest supermarket is on the shopping promenade directly above the Race Office (Fliegender Holländer 7-9, 24159 Kiel). The supermarket is open every day, but closes at lunchtime for a few hours. The nearest, somewhat larger supermarket is REWE and is located at the following address: Langenfelde 126A, 24159 Kiel. This market is also open every day.

After Sailing Beer and Social Events

After each day of racing there will be an After Sailing Beer on the meadow between the Race Office and the Sydbank-Lounge, to which all crews are invited. This great offer is possible thanks to our partners. More information on additional social events during the week will be presented soon.
