Biography

Before World War II, Hans Baars-Lindner started an apprenticeship as a boat builder. After the war, however, nobody in Germany was concerned about building new yachts, so he moved to Switzerland, where he started competitive sailing, mainly on Swiss lakes and on the Mediterranean in 5.5 metre yachts. In 1960 Baars-Lindner sailed the 5.5 m yacht “Bronia” together with Herbert Scholl and Karl-August Stolze for the 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. He ran his own business under the name of Renkhoff + Baars-Lindner in the town of Schleswig close to the coast of the Baltic Sea, where he joined the Schlei-Segel-Club and continued to sail his 60 m yacht “Irene,” which was built in Denmark in 1925, less than a year before Baars-Lindner was born.
