The first clubs are now registered and ready for three days of racing in Travemünde Bay in the Baltic Sea.

Nynne Desirée Ammundsen, General Secretary of ISLA, told us why Youth SCL is such a great innovation for the sport: "Following up on the successful Women's SAILING Champions League event held in Kiel, ISLA is ploughing full speed ahead with another important category of sailors, the youngsters. Now we dedicate our attention to the launch of a Youth SAILING Champions League for sailors in the age range of 16 to 23 years. We see a lot of activities for youth sailors in our ISLA nations and especially in Russia, Denmark and Germany. It delivers inspiration and gives young sailors the possibility to step into a keelboat just when they are coming to the end of their dinghy career. The youth is the future and therefore ISLA can only applaud all the great work that has been done so far to make the Youth SAILING Champions League event happen."

Jens Kath, Sports Director of Travemünder Woche, is welcoming Youth SAILING Champions League to debut as part of Travemünder Woche:

"Youth SAILING Champions League unites multiple characteristics of Travemünder Woche and therefore is a perfect addition to our event. Supporting youth sailing is one of our major objects for a long time now, what we have shown in the last year when we hosted all German youth championships. In the German Sailing League we are involved since the start because we are totally enthusiastic about the concept. And we are always open to new ideas and concepts and willing to implement them together. Travemünder Woche and Youth SAILING Champions League: it just fits!"
