Dehler 30 one design offshore sailors
Kalle Dehler & Thomas Dehler
One boat, two generations. Kalle Dehler has been active in racing for over 50 years and has been shaped by times of sailing icons like Willy Kuhweide and Dennis Conner. Thomas Dehler in contrast has grown up with racing opponents like Peter Burling and Boris Hermann, who has shed a new light on German offshore sailing. Together with this impulsive mix of experience and fast-moving Generation Y, the two could compete at Kiel Week 2020 with the only German offshore class, the Dehler 30od. The Dehler 30od can connect generations and demands everything from both of them: action, excitement, strategy and, to some extent, composure.

Marta Hansen and Ben Corson USA mixed Offshore team
Ben Corson and his partner Marta Hansen have for many years enjoyed sailing and racing a wide diversity of boat types, from a Flying Scot they keep on Deep Creek Lake in western Maryland to a series of larger and faster boats they sail on Chesapeake Bay. This latter group includes a J/125, an Open 6.50, and a Dragonfly 25 Sport trimaran. All have had their particular strengths within each genre of sailing – an offshore-capable keelboat, a lively sportboat, and a fast multihull, with the common element for all being high speed under sail.
Julia Röttger, Oliver Schmidt-Rybandt and Felix Hauss
Oliver has years of offshore experience and skippers in his home area Warnemünde just like Otto and Martin normally Volvo 60 Racer, but they all also shine with one or the other Dehler 30 one design triumph. Julia, normally a regular crew on Speedsailing's VO60s and also at home on small boats like the J70, is gaining her first experience in doublehanded mode in the Dehler 30 one design. Felix and Oliver won together the first German open in Kiel.
Oliver Schmidt Rybandt to the Dehler 30od: "We are proud and grateful to have been so closely involved in the development of this boat. After the first thousand miles, relief has also set in. The boat is fast in all conditions, has above average control and looks beautiful. We have fun training, racing and vacationing."
From the beginning with passion and know-how - from the development to the first race victories.

Anders Jönsson and Pia Lobry mixed double, From Inshore to offshore! SWE 41 team: No Xcuse
After doing competition in sailing since I was ten years old, I have spent the last years sailing Melges 20 mostly in inshore regattas.
Two years ago me and one of my crew member sailed our first Double Handed inshore/offshore race aproxímate 100 nautical miles. We had to upgrade quite a lot on the Melges to meet the safety regulations. No autopilot and no possibility to reduce sail size. It was tough, but it went well. A dream to sail offshore racing and article about the new Dehler 30 OD caught our Interest. After dreaming about new sail adventures me and my wife contacted the Swedish Dehler agent in order to find out more. Two weeks later we entered Rostock by ferry in order to test sail the new Dehler. We bought our first Dehler 2006 (a brand new Dehler 29) and our expectations were high. The boat exceeded our expectations by far! A fantastic boat with a great sailing performance. One month later the boat was ordered! We now look forward to receive our new boat in order to prepare for the 2021 season. Our first training session is planned to the Class training camp in April in Rostock. My mixed sailng partner at the national championship Will be Pia Lobry. She has sailed the transatlantic race some 10 years ago, and we raced against each other in the Hobie class.
Draft basic planning 2021.
Rostock the 21-24th of april, Baltic 500, May, Gotland runt (Swedish Championship in Mixed Double handed) 3rd of July, Silverrudder, September.
We look forward to meet and sail together with all other class members. We also look forward to a fantastic sailing season
No Xcuse! fight to the end and do not blame somebody else if you do not reach your target.
Robert Stanjek and Morten Bogacki
The Offshore Team Germany around team manager Jens Kuphal, Michael End and their two skippers Robert Stanjek and Morten Bogacki finishes the successful German mini-campaign and relies on the Dehler 30 one design for the sportive development. Jens Kuphal, who has observed and supported the development of the 30 one design from the very beginning, sees the racer-cruiser, which recently won the "European Yacht of the Year 2020" award, as the perfect training boat to drive forward the German offshore ambitions for The Ocean Race 2021/22 and the Olympic Games 2024 in Marseille.
