Since 1 March 2021 we can expect the first relaxation of the measures that have been imposed for weeks. There is still no reliable statement/forecast for large events such as open airs, exhibitions, sporting and cultural events (such as WINDWEEK) etc.. However, it can be assumed that such events will be the last to be permitted again - and then probably with a limited number of visitors and further protective measures. When this will be, however, remains uncertain. The board of the WINDWEEK.ch association and the WINDWEEK OC have therefore jointly decided to forego WINDWEEK 2021 and to work with full vigour towards WINDWEEK 2022.
The Windweek event offers public attractions on land and on water and is rounded off with national and international sailing regattas.
A three-day festival for everyone – adults and children, athletes and onlookers. For children, the big attractions are the water-walking balls and balance boards. For athletes, there are countless types of water sports to try out: diving, blobbing, SUP polo, sailing, sea kayaking, group canoeing and much more. And for those just happy to watch, the water-ski acrobatics show and blobbing jumps provide great entertainment.
Stands selling delicious street food and live bands on the stage add to the occasion and make this a very lively festival.
Each year, the Brunnen Regatta Club organises different regattas on the wind-rich eastern end of Lake Lucerne. The international sailing teams come to Brunnen not just to compete but also to enjoy the majestic landscape and many attractions of this large sailing region.
During the New Kids on the Water Week, secondary school-age children from the municipality of Ingenbohl-Brunnen can learn about sailing in small group workshops.
Due to the extraordinary situation in accordance with the Epidemic Law regarding the corona virus, the Board of Directors of the WINDWEEK.ch Association and the WINDWEEK OC have therefore jointly decided to cancel WINDWEEK 2020 and to work towards WINDWEEK 2021 with full vigour. The dates for 2021 are not yet known.
