Biography

Before World War II Baars-Lindner began an apprenticeship as a boat builder. After the war, however, Germans were not concerned with building new boats, so he moved to Switzerland, where he started competitive sailing in 5.5 metre yachts, mainly on Swiss lakes and the Mediterranean Sea. In 1960 Baars-Lindner sailed the 5.5m yacht “Bronia” together with [Herbert Scholl] and [Karl-August Stolze] for the Unified German Olympic team. After 10 years of intensive racing he returned to his home province of Schleswig-Holstein, and settled there with his wife and three daughters. By then Baars-Lindner had received his master's certificate, and started working at the Vertens ship yard.
