More than 600 people and 70 boats turned out for the Peter Gast Schiffahrtsregatta, where boats race between Schleimunde in northern Germany to the small Danish island of Aeroskobing.

The popular sailing event has been held annually for nearly 40 years but was cancelled last year due to the pandemic.

So the staging of the 38th regatta, in the last weekend of August, took on more importance for its shipbroker hosts Dieter and Christian Gast.
