alwaysonthesearch.com – what’s it all about, go ahead & read on. This site is about me, Enno Oldigs. I’m from the northern part of Germany which is called Schleswig-Holstein but also known as “Land of the Horizons” because it has on the west coast the North Sea and on the east coast the Baltic Sea. I started kitesurfing 2002 and I was right away stoked by this sport. The impact was that strong that I immediately sold all my windsurf stuff. After competing on the german Kitesurf Trophy Tour for several years, I started to work for TEAMwaterworld and Kite Mania Tours as a kitesurf instructor. In my private kite life I prefer nowadays kitesurfing in waves. My hot spots are South Africa during the European winter months and Denmark in the summer months. I’m still dreaming about Indonesia & Chile, so these destinations are defn. on the bucket list. Besides kitesurfing I enjoy taking pictures & traveling around the globe. Thru a lucky encounter by meeting captain “Dan” in 2009 I got the opportunity to do start sailing on the 78ft Baltic Lupa of London including boat deliveries across the atlantic and in the Med. In the past years I also got the chance to join the race crew on some regattas. With this great team the Lupa crew performed very successful. Here is a list of some regattas I took part in on Lupa of London:
- Rolex Giraglia Cup 2012
- Rolex Middle Sea Race 2012
- Heineken Regatta St. Maarten 2012 (Winner)
- Rolex Cup St. Thomas / US Virgin Islands (Winner)
- Rolex Maxi Worlds 2013 (Winner)
- Capri Rolex Sailing Week 2014
- Giraglia Rolex Cup 2014 (Winner)
- Rolex Maxi Worlds 2014 (Winner)

- RORC Transatlantic Race 2014 (Line honours & Winner Overall)

In the beginning of the 2017 season I’ve joined the 65ft sailing yacht CARO, a Botin Partners design and built by Knierim Yachts in Kiel / Germany. We did some regattas in the Med, which was a big step for me coming from a “Cruiser/Racer” to a way more “Race” orientated programme and a yacht which sails short handed. I can tell you, there is a lot going on while racing.
In 2019 we took part in the RORC Caribbean 600 which was such a great race. Sailing in Caribbean waters is so much fun, good breeze, warm air & water and at the a nice Rum.
