NAVIGA FSR Worlds 2015 in Görlitz/Hagenwerder Germany

The location of the next NAVIGA FSR World Championships in 2015 is now official! It will be held in Hagenwerder in Germany, east of Dresden and close to Görlitz, very close to the border to Poland.

The race pond is a bit small but it's actually more space to the left and right of the oval course then at Dessau where the previous NAVIGA Worlds where held in 2012 (it seems). But it's less space (then Dessau) for the top two buoys of the M-course for FSR-V. But overall it looks very good I think!

As a comparison, the Oval-Course at the Dessau Naviga FSR Worlds 2012 pond (what you can't see in this google map screenshot is that it's a diving tower to the left of the oval course and a pontoon bar protruding also on the left side of the course).

Letter from Naviga:

Naviga World Championship 2015 class FSR
"In May I was in Hagenwerder (Görlitz) Germany for look over the place for the World Championship FSR 2015. The area is a small camping side with a lake, this lake is not so big but big enough for what we need, for training there is very close one lake. Inside the camping there are places, but not enough for all however outside the camping there are green fields where it is possible to stay. During the World Championship there will be a pavilion for the catering and this will be sponsor by the local brewery in the town Görlitz, in this town there are a lot of hotels.

Görlitz is a beautiful old place where the opening and close ceremony will be on the square inside the town. For the meetings and banquet we have to go inside the brewery where they have special places for it. And so we have decided that Görlitz will be the place for the World Championship Class FSR from August 1 to August 15 2015.

In the first week we will run the FSR-V classes and in the second week FSR-H-O.

The Town Görlitz is about 5-6 km from the camping in Hagenwerder.

With regards,

Naviga Vice President / Naviga Section Leader FSR
Peter Schaft"
