Brief background; currently living in Leipzig. Never sailed before, keen on learning
. Iíve been wanting to join a sailing club to learn the ropes a bit and get to know the local sailing community, but havenít had the opportunity to do so just yet due to Covid and so on. In the mean time, weíve been thinking of moving up to Hamburg (or rather one of the neighboring towns) for various reasons, but mostly job prospects. If we move up, I am still keen on joining a sailing club, though Iím not sure what itís like up north whether directly on the Elbe, the North or Baltic
Sea coast. This also means that our proximity to a body of water
may be of some importance because Iím unsure how convenient it would be to have to have a long commute to scratch my sailing itch. Whatís the sailing community like in Hamburg or LŁbeck for example?
I was by the Elbe this morning and it looked like rather challenging and stressful conditions to sail with the current
, the commercial
traffic and tides (at least today) - especially for beginners, which we would be. Iím keen to know what sailing up there is like and/or if I could pick your brains about the area in general (if you live(d) in the area).
