Once a Year, the Constantine harbour is transformed into a Meeting Place for Sailors, Rowers and Water Sports Enthusiasts from all over Europe. This is because the annual International Lake Constance Week is an event with a long Tradition, the Visit of which is still worth a Trip to the Lake. Lake Constance Week was launched as early As 1909 and developed not only into one of the most important European Water Sports events, but also quickly into a social Event. Until 1972, the Event remained an important Meeting for Friends of Water sports across National Borders, but was then discontinued. In 2009, however, on the occasion of The 100Th anniversary of Lake Constance Week, it was remembered the Importance and importance of the Event for Water sports. German and Swiss Yacht Clubs, together with Konstanzer Stadtmarketing, launched a New Edition After 37 Years. With over 80,000 Visitors, the Reboot proved to be a complete Success. Since then, this extraordinary Event has been held annually in the Lake Constance Bay in front of the Twin Cities of Konstanz and Kreuzlingen And Inspires visitors and Contributors again and again. This Year will host the International Lake Constance Week from 8 March. June to 11. June 2017 and offers a diverse Program on the Topic of Water Sports. Not only enthusiastic Water Sports Enthusiasts get their Money’s worth, because the Program offers Attractions for the whole Family.
Top-class Sailing Regattas
The Highlight of the four-day event is certainly the sailing Regattas, which were very well attended by Spectators. Over 160 Sailboats compete on five regatta tracks over three Days in a dreamily beautiful sea View. Unlike other Competitions, classic and modern Yachts compete against each other and around 1000 Participants compete. Traditional Classes Such as Lacustre, Dragons or Meter Class Can be admired just as much as the modern ORC 1 – 4. This Year, the Three-man ketyboat Triassic will also be on display at International Lake Constance Week. By the way, some of the participating Sailboats could have participated as early As the Founding year 1909 and are real historical Treasures. Spectators can watch the Competitions on a Big Screen at Hafenplatz. If you prefer to be up close and personal, you can also cheer the Participants directly from the Water. For this, however, You should secure a Place on one of the Spectator ships in good time. A real Tip is the evening entry Of the Yachts into the Harbour, where Visitors can marvel at the Watercraft, which is well-groomed with love, up close And get in Conversation with the Participants.
