German sailor and entrepreneur Klaus Wagner takes the place of Rasmus Töpsch as a president of the L30 Class Association. The new president has been elected at the class meeting during the EUROSAF L30 Europeans on July 18, 2021.
At his 60-ties, Klaus Wagner is a sports manager, technical engineer and business consultant active in car racing and sailing. He holds three world records in motorsport and supports youth sailing. As the L30 class member, Klaus Wagner owns the GER31 boat and recently scored bronze medal at the L30 Europeans 2021.
Klaus Wagner, the president-elect of the L30 Class Association:
First of all it is a great honor for me to be elected as the L30 class president. I am grateful to all class members, who have voted for me. Also, I am grateful to Rasmus Töpsch for all his efforts as the class president. He did a fantastic job developing the class that now spreads across three continents. I will take all possible means to further popularize this fantastic class and boat, to invite more members to our L30 family.
The tasks I want to address in my new role are multiple. We will be seeking the international class status so the class can conduct world championships. With this we will be promoting the class to the mew countries and communities to further extend our fleet. As new sailors will be joining our family, I will seek to maintain integrity of the class so the one-design rule will be strictly maintained.
I also appreciate hearing from all the class members on any issues concerning L30 class. No matter how large will our community become, I believe every voice counts.
