Andreas Baden Racing

 Kiel Sailing, Influencer

Summary

AndreasBadenRacing stands for the combination of professional ocean racing with a Class40 racing yacht and sustainability and innovation.

Description

During my studies of environmental and agricultural sciences, I developed the enthusiasm to establish the connection between sporting competition, dealing with nature and sea sailing in the junior project of the Sailing Team Germany. Sea sailing is the challenge of making modern high-tech racing yachts fast under the influence of constantly changing weather conditions, with strategic consideration of the opponents and optimizing the technical, physical, and mental parameters and optimally coordinating all these influencing factors.

The connection between these worlds has been my motivation for a long time now: one the one hand, the need for environmental protection, conserving resources, supporting sustainability and renewable energies – on the other, the deep love for the sea and the elements. So far, many questions about sustainability and resource conservation have remained unanswered in yachting. The industry is just beginning to approach the topic cautiously.

A Class40 project that focuses on nature and the environment with its launch, but that does not lose its power and performance: That is my goal. I would like to work together with partners and suppliers to find solutions to further develop the industry more sustainably and to present future-oriented approaches. This project is intended to be a melting pot of ideas, a test platform for innovations, a means of communication to convey solutions via successful sports.
