Star Sailors League 2016
City Grand Slam Hamburg
City Grand Slam Hamburg - The Star Sailors League attracted a stellar cast of Olympic, World and European Champions from over 20 countries to Lake Alster, Hamburg, Germany for the first ever SSL City Grand Slam; on tight windward-leeward courses, some of the finest, most intense yacht racing, was witnessed by over 100,000 people. Thousands of people from the city of Hamburg watched from the banks of the lake, and over 80,000 people around the world watched the drama unfold live over the Internet. The superb facilities and race management of the Norddeutscher Regatta Verein were outstanding, and the 172 Star sailors that took part were a fine example of the ferocity, but also gentlemanly conduct, in the sport of sailing.
