Heiligenstedten Yach Marina (wet dock marina)
The association marina of the Itzehoe Sailing Club (SVI) is located on the right bank of the Stör, approximately 400 m behind the drawbridge in Heiligenstedten. Guests are welcome. The marina is the last yacht marina on the Stör accessible with a fully raised mast (maximum mast height: 18 m). The drawbridge in Heiligenstedten will open at the sound signal of 2 long tones or when you make a call to 04821-84325. Since the Stör waterway is highly dependent on the tide, the marina is protected by a dock gate. The dock gate can usually be opened one hour before high tide in Itzehoe and even sooner at high water levels. Boats can be no more than 3.85 m wide. It is possible to tie up at the waiting dock in front of the gate in order to wait for high tide. There are bathroom in the clubhouse, as well as power and water hookups. The SVI marina also includes the two docks on the opposite side of the Stör, where boats are also welcome to dock – one in front of and one behind the Stör drawbridge. These two docks are located in the deepest waters for sail boats. Motor boats can dock further up the Stör in the shallower slips. Plenty of places to obtain supplies in Heiligenstedten: Boat equipment stores, fuelling stations, petrol filling stations, home improvement centres, bakeries, and more are within easy walking distance, with even more stores in Itzehoe (bus connection). www.stoerschipper.de
