OF THE DSV
Founded in 1888, the German Sailing Federation was formed after merging German sailing and surfing clubs, state sailing and class associations, and other sailing sports organizations. As such, the DSV promotes sailing in sea and inland waters, on land and on ice, for adults and young people, as a recreational and regatta sport.
The association takes measures for the use, development and protection of open water surfaces and water fronts. It also ensures consumer protection and a comprehensive representation of sailing sports to the public.
