My name is Lutz, I am a passionate ocean sailor and political scientist from Germany. 

Home at sea, I have been working successfully in the offshore sailing industry as Skipper and Race Director since 2019. I am currently based out of Les Sables d'Olonne, the home of solo sailing, where I am preparing my boat 'Ems' for the biggest adventure yet, the Golden Globe Race 2026.

All details: Rainbow Goes GGR


2026 Golden Globe Race

Taking a bearing on the biggest project so far: A solo, nonstop voyage around the world. 

I have officially entered the GGR 2026 with a fantastic team of close friends and mentors and a special Rustler 36. 
PM me to get involved!
