The Waterbike Team University of Rostock was founded in 1989 after visiting the Ordensfest of the H.F.Latte ad Hammaburg and thus celebrates its 22nd anniversary this year.
By now, the WBT Rostock has about 30 members building boats and drinking beer :-)
The WBT Rostock has three boats: anna, the first Waterbike built in Rostock in 1989; RENATE, the viking boat built in 2006 and annaX, the sprint machine built in 2007.

anna X is the latest  creation of Rostock's Waterbike Team. Our own inability to build a symmetrical catamaran finally led to her design. Built in spring 2007, she was introduced for the first time on the IWR in Gdańsk. We planned on designing a snake-like slalom-beast, winding around everything. Unfortunately our design failed for that purpose, and we were close to abandon. Luckily she performs well on any straight path and after sprint victories at IWRs in Gdansk, Rostock as well as international championships in sprint and long distance races we realized to have an incredible weapon  for straightforward tracks. Since we didn't sleep last winter, everyone should take care for a white black-striped carbon racing machine build in Rostock.

RENATE was rescued by the Waterbike Team in February 2006, after curvaceous and strong body had been tortured in the universitys towing tank for so many years. In the summer of 2006, she not only got a new inner life but a new sense of life as well.
She maybe is not the fastetst but probably the most gentle boat of Rostocks Waterbike fleet, our almost indestructible supply vessel. In the meantime, she has gained new self-confidence and turned into a Viking boat to defend us bravely on every regatta.
