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)
  • Voiles de St. Tropez
  • RORC Transatlantic Race 2014 (Line honours & Winner Overall)
  • Rolex Sydney – Hobart 2015 ( see blog post here)
  • Rolex Giraglia Cup 2016

In the beginning of the 2017 season  I’ve joined the 65ft sailing yacht CARO to do 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 boat which also sails short handed.  I can tell you, there is a lot going on while racing.

Also in 2017 I teamed up with the brand new SWS 96 SY SORCERESS to do the ROLEX Maxi worlds 2017  and the RORC Transatlantic Race 2017

In 2019 we took part in the RORC Caribbean 600 which is such a great race. Sailing in the Caribbean is so much fun, good breeze, warm waters and end the end a nice Rum.
