KKH-Alster-Run 2015

On Sunday July 5, 2015 we participated with our MathMods and international Maths students in the German wide KKH-Run (organized by a German Health Insurance). The registration fee went to a charity purpose ("Ein Herz für Kinder"). On a very hot summer day (more than 30 degrees!) our students overcame the short or even long distance (2.5 or 7.5 km) along the Alster lake with some exciting close finishes. The event was well organized by a German sponsor. Each runner was provided with cold drinks, some fruits and sweets. Our students had especially great fun during the warming-up exercises. The photos speak for themselves... Since we started for the University of Hamburg team we even won the third price (200,00 euros) for having been one of the biggest teams!

Dragon-Boat Tour in Hamburg

Written by Friday, 12 June 2015 10:04

Last Friday (June 5, 2015) we went out on a dragon bout tour on the Alster lake and its canals. We were lucky for having chosen this day, it was the first summer day in Hamburg with about 27 degrees and Hamburg was shown at its best from the water side! While passing at some of the most prosperous properties in Hamburg with beautifull estates and gardens with rhododendrons in flower we saw lots of aquatic birds such as ducks, geese, great crested grebes, cormorants and swans. The Alster lake as well as the canals were well-attended by people doing stand up paddling, canoeing and we saw all kinds of boats: for sailing, pedalling, rowing and we crossed the famous Alster boats passing.

After a short introduction in how to behave on and deal with the dragon boat given by our cox our students launched the dragon boats and with Aida and Rakshit on the drums we put to sea. The most important command was the stop command in order to avoid a pile-up with other watercrafts or the botany. Our students showed once again their ability to respond to a challenge which they mastered brilliantly. Addtionally our students gave a sample of their Italian knowledge by counting in Italian in order to improve the rhythm of the rowing teams! After a really short break and a change on the drums, Sascha alternated with Rakshit, our cox who by the way was enthusiastic of our students, who tried hard to follow his instructions and to cut a good figure, trained us for a final race. Only by a hair's breadth the red team won the race. We had a lot of fun and none of us felt into the water :-).
