The 30th edition of the Hanse Sail was the perfect occasion for us to invite friends & family over to our place. Hanse Sail is Rostock’s annual meeting for museum ships and traditional sailing ships and one of the world’s largest events of its kind. In early August, we opened our doors to celebrate the JAKOTA Open House Day with friends, local partners & family members of the JAKOTA Group. We warmly welcomed all guests to our headquarter to enjoy a couple of cocktails and snacks, relax and watch the sailing ships of the Hanse Sail go by in front of the office. The kids had fun at the raffle (the collected money will be donated to the German Maritime Search and Rescue Association (DGzRS)) and everybody was having a good time.

The weather was our friend during this years Hanse Sail-luckily! About a million of visitors enjoyed this traditional baltic event on the quays of Warnemuende and Rostock Port. 230 sailing vessels from 13 nations proudly showed their countanance and wooden corpus. Thousands of visitors again took the chance to get a closer look at the “Gorch Fock“, “Zobel”, “Braunschweig” and other ships. The “Gorch Fock” will be back in 2009.
The results of the regattas: the “First ship home” from the big ones was the Clipper “Stad Amsterdam“, whilst you have to know that the schonerbrigg “Greif” -being second ship home- has got much less sail area that the dutch vessel. The “Greif” won a neck-and-neck race against the swedish brigantine “Baltic Beauty”. The winner of the single-masted sailing boats is “Stella Maris”. On Saturday especially the viewers in Warnemuende had an awsome picture of the fireworks, because at the same time they had the chance to watch the cruise liner “Regatta” leave the Rostock Port.
We hope that anyone who took the chance to watch all that via Fleetmon also had an great experience and enjoyed the Hanse Sail 2008!
Rostock will be crowded and there will be much to see through the eyes of nearly 20 perfectly positioned webcams.
We are looking forward to welcome all the huge sailing ships in Rostock Port. Watch them entering the harbour in real time using Fleetmon, our special vessel tracking device.
We are excited to have lots of old maidens for a visit – lets all keep our fingers crossed that the weather is our friend this year! Find out more here:
