Carine’s trip to Germany – What’s she been up to?

Carine’s story….

Despite a limited coastline, sailing is a serious business in Germany.  From the Baltic Sea to the southern lakes, not forgetting the inland waterways around Berlin and the many “expats” seeking warmer seas, German sailors know a thing or two about quality marine products.

Eckernforde harbour - venue of the famous Eel regatte in May, which is the prelude to Kiel week in June!

Therefore, unsurprisingly, Scanstrut continues to enjoy growing sales in this market, managed by electronics and marine distribution specialist nordwest-funk.  From its base in Emden (touristic seaport of North Western Germany), owner Niko Reisch’s team ensure that Scanstrut products are made available to a wide dealer network.

Easter is an eagerly awaited time in the German sailing calendar.  So, together with Kai Oberhoff (NWF Sales Manager North/East), I set out on a 2 day Scanstrut Dealer tour to meet the people who sell and fit our products every day.  Our journey took us to the core sailing land – from the buzzing Hamburg and its leafy surrounding area to the beautiful Baltic shores.

Yours truly having a well deserved rest....

And everywhere, the same excitement was in the air – spring is back, time to get the boats ready for this year’s Segelsaison*!

A couple of our Scanstrut specialists below will certainly know how to help you with that…
