Welcome to Warnemünde
and congratulations on the 25th anniversary of Europe's most important invitational competition in ocean lifesaving! This very special competition has remained loyal to Warnemünde beach since its premiere and is now part of the summer in Rostock.
To ensure that bathing fun is also safe, lifeguards have been guaranteeing carefree sport on the beach for over 100 years. I would like to thank you all very much for that! Physical fitness, speed and a high level of concentration are important qualities for lifeguards. During my school days, I was a lifeguard myself and can therefore appreciate how much strength and what great commitment this sport demands. Because time and time again, one's own limits are reached in order to save the lives of others. Thousands of swimmers trust in this every year on the German beaches of Warnemünde, Hohe Düne, Markgrafenheide and Diedrichshagen.
We are looking forward to exciting competitions between over 200 participants of the international teams from all over Europe. My special thanks go to the organisers of the DLRG and more than 100 volunteers. I wish all participants much fun and successful competitions at the Baltic Sea!
