Back to overview

The biggest regatta in on earth will be coming to you in English in 2019. For the past number of years, Kiel Week, the regatta and sailing festival that is unequalled the world over, has produced an excellent live broadcast of the racing. For 2019, via the 49er youtube channel, it will now also be available in English to viewers the world over.

“Kiel Week hosted the 49er and Nacra 17 classes for the European Championship in 2017. We see things the same way for promoting the best of Olympic sailing and Olympic sailors. With the common approach to Olympic sailing it was easy for us to link up again in another capacity,” said 49er and Nacra 17 class president, Marcus Spillane.

Subscribe to the 49er youtube channel and get ready for the action. The preliminary broadcast schedule for Kieler Woche is:

June 26                 11:30 – 12:45     Offshore Race Start 11:30

                              13:00 – 15:00     49er Men

June 27                 12:00 – 14:30     49erFX Women

June 28                 12:00 – 14:30     Nacra 17

June 29                 12:00 – 14:30     49er Men

June 30                 11:00 – 14:00     Medal Races for all Olympic Classes

“We have had a long-term strategy of promoting Olympic Sailing, Sailing in general, and our Sailing festival through a mix of traditional and progressive media. Our broadcasting in recent years has focused on the domestic German market, but we are excited to add an English language option for the worldwide sailing audience,” said Organizing Director Dirk Ramhorst. We are excited to link up with the 49er Class on this project and continue to serve the sailors and sailing fans in as many ways as we can.

Kiel Week  is a 9-day long sailing regatta and festival that is annually on the last full week of June. Half of the week is focused on select international classes and youth classes. The second half of the week is for Olympic classes. Alongside the regatta is a massive festival that is an annual highlight of the year for tens of thousands of visitors who join us in Kiel to enjoy the sailing lifestyle. Check out the full program.

The 49er Class is made up of both the 49er doublehanded men’s skiff and 49erFX doublehanded women’s skiff. The 49er Class has been live broadcasting much of our racing that matters since our Europeans in 2012.

Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, is famous for its stunning harbours and sailing culture. It is, without a doubt, a world-class racing and regatta destination.

The downtown competition venue offers quick and easy access to a vibrant city with a celebrated culinary scene, fantastic shopping, and dynamic arts and culture. As well as big city sophistication, Auckland also offers an incredible natural setting; beautiful beaches, volcanic cones, island getaways and expansive parks are never too far away.

Home to sailing champions and the highly anticipated 2021 Americas Cup, Aucklanders and New Zealander’s alike are proud of their sailing heritage. Here, the Championship will enjoy huge support from the public.

Auckland is looking forward to welcoming all athletes, teams and supporters of the 49er, 49er FX and Nacra 17 World Championships.
