CHANY LANEX OFFSHORE CUP 2019 in the waters of the South Baltic
This year we also supported the seventh edition of the CANY LANEX OFFSHORE CUP 2019 held in Kühlungsborn, Germany from 15 - 19 September 2019. The CHANY LANEX OFFSHORE CUP is a single-hull offshore boat race designed for sailing area B (Offshore category according to ISO 12217-2). This challenging race was attended by 7 crews, who, despite the bad weather and very strong winds, fought to their last remaining strength to safely cross the finish line.
The race’s expected route was set out with the points Kühlungsborn (GER), Bornholm (DEN), Christiansø (DEN), Kühlungsborn (GER) with a length of about 350 Nm.
For safety reasons, the race was split into two legs as westerly winds of up to 50 knots and waves reaching up to 3 m were expected. The second leg heading back, started from the Dueodde lighthouse after the weather calmed down. Some crews were hit by hail on the return trip, but even that didn't deter the brave participants from fighting for a place on the podium.
