Press Boats

Journalists who can provide a valid press id or legitimation by their editor's office have the option to use press boats for their reporting. To do so, you need to register directly at the Press Office in the Regattahaus by 6pm on the day before. Please name the regatta courses you wish to go to. 

In general, two trips per day are planned in the morning and afternoon. Places are limited and primarily intended for photographers and TV crews. Boarding starts at the press center in the Regattahaus.

If you are unable to attend the trip, please deregister at the press reception in the regatta house by 8.30 a.m. in the morning. This gives other colleagues the opportunity to participate in this trip. Cancellations are also possible by telephone at the Schilksee Press Centre.

The token fee per person and per journey is 30 euros. It is due at the time of registration and can only be refunded if you deregister in good time by 8.30 am.
