Every editorial staff may position up to a maximum of four existing Boats crew Sailors. Also, individual participants like freelance journalists, correspondents and press spokespersons may take part in the contest on board. The so-called “Hot Seat”, will be raffled by the media, listeners, readers or viewers or awarded to a self-selected guest of honour.
The mediacup will be sailed on a german type of sailing dinghy called “Gruben Sprint” – with 4,70 hull length. Sailing professionals are not allowed. Guests and children are warmly welcome : You can follow ongoing activities on a 10 m accompanying a kind of a traditional lugger.

BOAT & FUN BERLIN and HISWA Amsterdam In-Water Boat Show join forces
The popular Berlin and Amsterdam boat shows are forming a partnership, combining their strengths to attract even more international visitors.
The exchange of knowledge and contacts and the promotion of each other’s show form the basis of the partnership. The HISWA Amsterdam In-Water Boat Show, which this year runs from 30 August to 4 September, is the Netherlands’ only In-Water boat show.
The HISWA Amsterdam In-Water Boat Show is the only place to see most of the Dutch yacht builders in one place. The market in Germany is recovering, which is something we aim to tap into through the partnership. We can use the Berlin Boat Show’s knowledge of the German market to encourage their visitors to come to the HISWA Amsterdam In-Water Boat Show and vice versa, of course. By attracting more visitors together we can reach a larger international public than by acting individually.
