2018 is a truly remarkable year and is the Jubilee anniversary of two of the most highly regarded sailing clubs in the world; the 150th Anniversary Nordeutscher Regatta Verein, founded in 1868 and the 50th Anniversary of the Yacht Club Costa Esmerlda.
To celebrate this momentous year the NRV is organising the Atlantic Anniversary Regatta which is combining two Atlantic ocean races. Westbound from Lanzarote to the YCCS in Virgin Gorda and Eastbound from Hamilton, Bermuda to Hamburg, Germany. This is a 1st for any regatta and will connect the exotic locations of Virgin Gorda and Bermuda with the vibrant maritime metropolis of Hamburg.
Leg 1 is the RORC TransAtlantic Race in November 2017 starting on the 25th November.
Leg 2 is the Eastbound crossing of the Atlantic from Hamilton Bermuda to Hamburg Germany starting on the 7th July 2018.
