Crew

One team - one goal

Christian Plump and his crew are said to belong to the most successful German Offshore regatta teams for many years now. They not only became first in the German IMS I ranking in 2007 they even won the World Championship in IMS I by substantial lead.

In 2008 the new ORC International class was established and Christian Plump and his crew raced straight onto third place at the European Championship. The following year they even reached for gold and became European Champions in this new class. 2010 the team won another title to put on their merit list: They once again became World Champion in ORC I.

After 12 years in northern waters, Christian Plump decided 2013 to sail in the Medsea, which is known for its strong and fierce competition. The base and training area is in Palma de Mallorca where the best teams of the world meet for training and races. The new training ground and Christian Plumps international crew lead to first successes already, after several regattas on the new competition playground.
