Vanity V. - Birthday

"The 31/08/2016 was a special day for a very special beauty - Vanity V 80th years birthday. It was a fantastic time on the water. A race with good company from Dyvig to Glücksburg - and yes, she is still a fast and bonnie lady - William Fife would be proud see her in this wonderful shape. Two charming owners, a very happy race crew and many other 12mR friends joined the party with champagne and fine food. Fair winds for the next 80 years. Cheers."

Vim and Vanity V. on the podium in Kieler Woche

In the waters off the Kieler Yacht Club, this year's first part of the Baltic 12mR series was held. Short courses, plenty of wind and 10 motivated 12mR yachts made eventful and thrilling racing.

Getting in to racemode

Vanity V., Vim and Thea spent the weekend 28-29 of May on a friendly duel in the waters just off Skovshoved as a part of the preparation for this summer's regattas in Germany, Norway and Denmark.

Wessel & Vett Meter Cup 2016

Royal Danish Yacht Club are looking forward to see all of you for the 12mR Wessel & Vett Meter Cup 2016 / North European Championship in Copenhagen.

Skovshoved Harbour is a modern and functional harbour and is situated close to Copenhagen Downtown with only 20 min drive to Tivoli and the main shopping areas.

The clubhouse is in the center of the harbour so walking distances are short and the clubhouse forms a natural meeting point together with the huge event tent.

The North Europeans will start on Wednesday 17th of August and the closing ceremony will be on Sunday 21th of August. Racing will start on Thursday18th.

Race area will be North of Skovshoved Harbour with a maximum of 1 hours sailing to reach the race areas. The weather i Copenhagen at that time of year is usually great with an average temperature of 18 Celsius and average wind of 8,5 knots from the west - southwest. On sunny days the sea breeze will build and sometimes reach 30 knots.

Hotel facilities are very good and at that time of year reasonably priced. We have negotiated special prices and conditions for participants and families.

The preliminary NoR will be ready soon. Hope to see you in Copenhagen in August.
