German Yacht Clubs

Post by Jason on Sun Nov 03, 2013 4:44 pm

In an attempt to relieve the boredom of doing DIY, job applications and putting together IKEA furniture, I ended up doing some random googling to see if I could find any info on if there had been any warships in the Glory period that were built or owned by Hamburg (for something I'm doing in G2). At first I thought it very unlikely...

Imagine my surprise to learn of the Hamburg Admiralty http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamburgische_Admiralit%C3%A4t (the page is in German and I have enough problems with English Wink ...luckily Google Translate helped!) and that it did have a small fleet (3 ships) in the Glory period. I also learnt that Lubeck and Bremen had similar sized fleets at various times. So it seems like its not just Prussia and Hanover who had yacht clubs Wink

I even found Hamburg http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/de%5Ehhcso.html and Lubeck http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lübecker_Stadtmilitär had small armies!


Just found it interesting background Smile

You might need to translate the page and scroll down a bit to find the Hanover section
