The new 2018 Youth SAILING Champions League kicks off from July 27 to 29 during Travemünde Week. Travemünde is an international top venue that has hosted numerous International Youth Championships over the years. Hence, the championship for the best youth club teams fits perfectly into the event's strategy. The teams will compete in a fleet of matched J/70 one-design sailboats supplied by the organizers.

At the end of July, up to 28 teams from more than 17 nations will compete in the first event of the Youth SAILING Champions League in Travemünde at the Baltic Sea in Germany. Each National Sailing League gets the chance to send up to two club teams to the event. The organizing authorities, ISLA and Sailing Champions League GmbH, leave the decision to the national leagues as to which clubs to nominate for the event. Additional spots will be granted as wild cards by ISLA and SCL.

Each club sends a team of four to five youth sailors under the age of 21 (born in 1997 or later) to Travemünde. The familiar format with six to eight J/70 boats, a pairing list and short, spectator and media-friendly races will be used. SailTracks provides the live broadcasting on behalf of SAP as "Official Technology Partner" of Travemünde Week.

Oliver Schwall, CEO of Sailing Champions League commented, "Looking back, we are super thrilled and proud of what the German 'Segel-Bundesliga' and SAILING Champions League add to the world of sailing. 17 countries, more than 300 sailing clubs and more than 3,000 sailors are competing in this beloved and innovative format. It's great that two of Germany's top sailing venues are taking the lead for Women's SAILING Champions League (Kiel) and Youth SAILING Champions League (Travemunde)."

The hosting club is Lübecker Yacht-Club, the principal organizer of Travemünde Week, in close cooperation with Travemünder Woche GmbH.
