Norddeutscher Regatta Verein (NRV) wins German National Sailing League 2013
Last Sunday, the NRV Team of Florian Spaltenholz, Niklas von Meyerinck, Klaas Höpcke and Johannes Polgar sealed their overall victory of the inaugural season of the German National Sailing League.  A 4th in the final difficult and gusty event on Wannsee in Berlin was enough for the Marinepool partner club to clinch the title and they can now rightfully call the Norddeutscher Regattaverein “Germany´s  Best Yacht Club 2013” .
“The atmosphere in Berlin was great and particularly the support by our fans was just awesome”, said Niklas von Meyerinck. “In the beginning, we had a few problems to get going; however, we gained back control relatively fast and showed solid tactics and good speed in Berlin. We always kept one eye on our competitors, especially the Württembergische Yacht-Club, which were breathing down our neck.”
Nevertheless, finishing one place shy of the podium in Berlin was sufficient for the NRV Team to remain at the top of the league’s table with 81 points, their reward for a very consistent season.  The podium was completed with second Württembergischer Yacht Club (rank 2, 73 points) and third Verein Seglerhaus am Wannsee (rank 3, 69 points).
As the official clothing supplier of the winning NRV Team, Marinepool warmly congratulates the crew and the entire yacht club to their outstanding success – indeed, a victory for the history books.
Marinepool not only is the official clothing supplier of NRV and VSaW, the teams of the Bavarian Yacht Club (BYC) and the German Touring Yacht club (DTYC), finishing the season in 6th (BYC, 65 points) and 7th (DTYC, 58 points) position respectively were also equipped with Marinepool performance sailing clothing.
The German National Sailing League is a brainchild of Konzeptwerft, the company that is also behind Sailing Team Germany. The Series pits the leading yacht clubs Germany´s in 5 events against each other. Participating yacht clubs bring their best teams to the start including Olympic, World and European champions, hence the level of sailing is extremely high. 2013 saw the following 5 host venues organizing events.
Starnberger See June 6th – 9th 2013
Lübecker Buch July 19th – 21st 2013
Alster August 30th – September 1st 2013
Bodensee September 27th – 29th 2013
Wannsee November 8th – 10th 2013
