For several years, Witt & Sohn has sponsored youth sailing. For our company this commitment to sailing is logical, especially considering the originals of Witt & Sohn in serving the shipbuliding industry. Further, sailing is based on the moment of air:
Whether a fan or sail, the same physical laws apply. And, finally: These young sailors are representatives for the Hanseatic city of Hamburg, very motivated and not afraid to compete with the best in the word, just like the employees of Witt & Sohn.
Several projects are supported.
A J-24 of the sailing club Altona Oevelgönne (SVAOe). On this ship 6 young people compete at home and abroad. A special highlight was the European Championship in Dublin in 2011 where Hungriger Wolf was the winner of the Junior European Championship.
A very talented young sailor from Hamburg/Wedel, from Mühlenberger Sailing Club (MSC). In optimists he was already one of the best in Germany and a Hamburg champion. In the World Championship in Kingston, Canada 2014 he and his bowman got an excellent 12th place. For 2015 he is planning to the switch to the Olympic 49er class.
