Maritimes Gaffelfest

on September 28, 2019 from 11:00 to 15:00 o'clock in Glückstadt

At the end of September 2018 there will be a colorful sailing festival for everyone in Glückstadt. All traditional sailors, their boatmen and crews and all citizens of the city Glückstadt as well as guests from all parts of the republic as well as the neighboring states are WELCOME! The Gaffelwettfahrt "Around the Rhinplate" has been around for decades. Originally created by some hamburger enthusiasts, it is the oldest race for traditional sailors in Germany. The Glückstadt "Rhinplate Rund" will be equipped with a cheerful supporting program, which involves all participating crews, interested spectators and the citizens of the city. This Gaffelfest should also be taken as an opportunity to integrate the Glückstadt inner harbor in the Gaffelszene and introduce him to the owners of the traditional ships and bring closer. On Friday afternoon, the event starts with the arrival of historic gaff sailors in the Glückstadt outer harbor. Then, as night falls in the inland harbor, the lantern ride from SVG and the fishing club in conjunction with the illuminated water games of the fire brigade begins. From 21 clock on the museum ship "Greundiek" musical performances are planned. Saturday is the focus of the Gaffeliggregatta around the Rhinplate, starting at 11 am from the outer harbor. After the regatta, the gaff sailors are taken to the inland port and dock at the harbor promenade. On Sunday, the association "AKtiv für Glückstadt" presents a "farmers and Ewermarkt" with the support of gaff sailors along the harbor promenade.
