The story behind the image
Kiel Schiksee is the melting point for the sailing competitions during Kiel Week. From here, it’s not too far to the outer Baltic Sea, and the Olympic Center provides an excellent infrastructure for the athletes and their teams.
This is a shot across the marina. As you can see, the weather was pretty mixed, and I still remember that the grand opening of Kiel Week was pretty cold (about 10 °C) and windy. But to genuine sailors this does not matter, and we did not care either.
The photo is from a slide and the grain indicates that it’s a 400 ASA film. God knows why I used that one, but that’s the way it is. The scan from Kodak PhotoCD adds further softness, so all-in-all, the digital representation of the slide is only so-so. But I like the rubber boats in the front and busy marina in the back. Nice.
