Appearances in television and on public events as well as on the website can grow his fan base quickly. No wonder: Boris Herrmann is a sympathetic, which remains modest after spectacular performances. Who sees the young man from Kiel, 2007, economist with the exam ended his studies as a graduate on the University of Bremen, the first time, you can hardly believe that it is with the elite of extreme ocean sailor. Hermann is the only German under the extreme sailors who mostly come from France and England. While Boris Herrmann can refer to a remarkable career of sailing, which made possible a deep-sea sailing career.

Like Boris Becker already as a child he began with his sports. So he was in recent years among other things already German – and European champions in the 505 dinghy, had the Minitransat”, the Atlantic regatta with small, only six metre yachts, as youngest participant with the space of eleven stops, and sailed 20,000 miles as a professional skipper of a luxury yacht with guests on the Mediterranean and on the North Sea. The German boat industry, which sets to around three billion euros in the year waited by the way long on such a successful glider, which makes sense with the fascination of sailing sports. The reason: The average age of the German boat owner 56 years after latest polls and there is no offspring.

Boris Hermann effect can bring young people to embrace the sport of sailing and to rise even in the boat. Boris Herrmann and Felix will make it at least once again Eric on February 8. Then the Portimao is global ocean race”with the 7,100 nautical miles, or more than 13,000 kilometers long ocean passage to Brazil continued. At this stage, it is to go around the stormy Cape Horn. The regatta, in which the German team has developed the reputation as a favorite, ends after further stages of Brazil after Charlston, United States, and then in June by the United States back to Portugal. Until then, Boris Herrmann must still almost 30,000 kilometres sailing and indemnify survive storms, and lulls.
