The Strelasund is a strait that separates two land masses.  It separates the island of Rügen from the Western Pommeranian mainland.

  • Length: 33 Km (25 Km)
  • Narrowest point: 950 m
  • Widest point: almost 3km
  • Width at the rowing club: about 2000 m

Another special natural feature is the lagoon water in the Strelasund. It is made up of the salty water of the Baltic Sea and the freshwater rivers that end in the Sund. It is technically salt water but with low concentration of salt. And interesting setting for races.

In addition to the Stralsund Coastal Regatta the so called Sundschwimmen is worth mentioning. It is an annual international swimming competition with well known swimmers.
