Rowing racing boat receives name "Berncasteler Doctor"
A double-twin racing boat was named "Berncasteler Doctor" at the Bernkastel Rowing Club. The godmother was Sofia Thanisch, whose winery has owned parcels in the world-famous vineyard for more than 200 years. She reminded the audience that her great-grandfather Dr Hugo Thanisch had been one of the founders of the rowing club almost 150 years ago and was its first president. At the first regatta, female rowers from the club had taken 2nd place in the German Championships with their racing boat.
