Dear Waterbikers, HPB Enthusiasts,
we had some very nice championships 2013 in Leer!
You can look up results, pictures and reports here or at hpv.org. Not everything is online yet, but soon.
Thanks to Stadt Leer for the great support (most of all Mayor Kellner, Martina Salie, Uwe Vogelsang, Ehler Cuno),
to the Ruderverein for their building (most of all Beate Stammwitz for the arrangements and Tülin ... for the party),
to the HPV Deutschland e.V. (President Heike Bunte, Ex-President Christoph Hipp, HPB-specialized hard workers Thomas, Hubert, Heiko, Michael, Ervin and all other helping hands),
to the Hamburg Waterbike Team of Technische Universität Hamburg-Harburg and the Heylige Frawe Latte for the bollard pull machine,
to the Deutsche Lebensrettungsgesellschaft DLRG Leer for water rescue and buoy help and Deutsches Rotes Kreuz DRK Leer for land rescue,
to MS Koralle, her captain and the Hafenmeister for 100m track support,
to Metallbau May for steel parts
and all others who made this event possible!
We will remember Leer as a very nice place and maybe we will come back one day...
Since I will now retire from regatta organization it would be nice if anybody who is interested in helping organizing the next years would contact the hpv.org or me that these great regattas can go on in future in Europe.
Keep on waterbiking!
