The first starting gun for the "X-festival" during Kieler Woche 2009 has been fired with online entry now available for the X-35 World Championship and the X-41 European Championship.
The X-35 World Championship and the X-41 European Championship take place during the International Part of Kieler Woche, which follows on from the battle amongst the Olympic sailors at the sixth and penultimate event of the 2008-2009 ISAF Sailing World Cup
The online entry is very simple and completed in only a few steps…
Together with the computer company b+m Informatik AG the Kieler Yacht-Club developed a regatta management programme which allows both the online entry and a simple online payment facility for the event entry fee. For those who still want to look into the Notice of Race can also do so online: all documents are available on the official Kieler Woche homepage.
During Kieler Woche 2009 (20-28 June) the X-35 World Championship will take place for the second time after 2007 whereas the X-41 class will be celebrating the première of its first European Championship. Both events begin on Monday 22 June with Check-In and measurement and will end on the following Sunday 28 June.
