The runners-up was secured by the Wassersport-Verein Hemelingen (WVH). Then, the defending champion from the Hamburg, the Norddeutscher Regatta Verein (NRV) was third.

In the big showdown for the championship, the thirty-six best sailing clubs from all over Germany sailed for three days. With a 15-point lead in the overall championship, the Berlin VSaW started from a very good starting position, securing not only the championship trophy, but also the coveted German starting place for the international offshore regatta 'Nord Stream Race' in 2020.

"At last! After many years in the Segel-Bundesliga, we managed to get the overall victory. We are overjoyed and look forward to the next season,” rejoiced Tim Elsner, helmsman of the Berlin’s VSaW.
