Regatta Press Conferences
Press conference at the end of the first part of the regatta on Wednesday, June 21, on the stage in the Sailing Arena.
Other daily press conferences will be announced as the occasion arises.
Your contact person is Andreas Kling, the press officer of the Kieler Woche regatta.
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 50 euros, because costs have risen sharply. The fee is due at the time of registration and can only be refunded if you deregister in good time by 8.30 am.

If you require a press parking space, please indicate this when picking up your accreditation. You will then receive a parking permit on the license plate of your vehicle.
If you are visiting for the first time, please identify yourself with your press pass when entering the Tempest parking lot, if necessary.
