Sailing afternoons on Ammersee (2008)

19 posts in this topic

Travel plans:

 

Train leaves Hauptbahnhof 12:51, change at Geltendorf and get in to Utting (Ammersee) at 13:40. (Trains can be late, missing connections! )

Group ticket can be organised if enough people get together.

 

OR:

 

Travel by own transport. Meet up at the pier for Ernst segelschule at 13:45

 

Maybe we meet up before the time to sail for a picnic lunch and give you the chance to ask more questions.

 

Boat Details

 

No specialist equipment is needed. Suncream, soft soled trainers so you don't slip, a light waterproof jacket in case it rains and perhaps a jumper in case the weather looks changeable or cloudy. We can take bags onto the boat, so changing clothes or carrying drinks should not be a problem.

 

Costs are for just the boat hire @ € 15 per hour split between us. They can take up to 8 people, kids are welcome.

 

I have one boat now "permanently" reserved, but need a commitment by Thursday from skippers to book more.

 

Let me know if you want me to pm you my handy number in case of emergencies! Works only from Friday evening.

 

Post here each week if you wish to join on the forthcoming Sunday.

Okay so I seem to have filled the second boat, or nearly at least!

The sight of rain could well change that though!

If you drive, turn at the "recreational area" and not at "Utting" (the erholung or freizeit gebiet - I forget which - is a turn off before Utting train station/harbor). :ph34r:

Nah, it's due to stop! Maybe a bit of drizzle now and again, but nothing serious. We are on our way now.

We have no skipper available this weekend ( and it looks cold and damp) so we will skip the 13th, unless a volunteer steps up?

If this is on again this year, definitely count me in. I took a sailing course last summer and one of my biggest regrets about moving from the UK is that I won't be able to do any follow-on courses.

Hi,

When I move to Munich (living near Heidelberg now) I would like to meet up with you guys.

 

I want to find a way to get my girlfriend and her kids and my daughter on the water.

 

I will be bringing my Finn Dinghy to Starnbergersee and racing it all over, but it is not very suitable for taking people for a ride.

 

p.s. do any of you know if you can take the segelschein test with out paying for classes. I have lived here for 9 years and got by, but at some stage I guess I have to do it. I will call the Deutschesegelverband soon but just thought I would ask.

 

I used to have a US skippers license when I was working for a charter company but that was some time ago.

 

Marco
