ROAD TO THE WORLDS WAYPOINTS Series

May 22, 2017) – The International 12 Metre Class (ITMA) has released locations and dates for the ROAD TO THE WORLDS WAYPOINTS Series, a three-year international 12 Metre (12mR) yacht competition starting in May of 2017 and culminating with the July 2019 12 Metre World Championship in Newport, R.I. Teams racing at specific WAYPOINTS-designated events in Northern Europe, Southern Europe and the Americas will be awarded points for both their participation and performance. At the culmination of this 29-regatta series, the 12mR team with the greatest number of points overall will be awarded the Waypoints Cup at the 2019 12 Metre World Championship Awards Ceremony. “The ROAD TO THE WORLDS WAYPOINTS Series is designed to encourage participation and competition among the 12mR yachts around the world and encourage present and prospective 12mR owners and charterers to compete in the 2019 12 Metre World Championship,” said Peter Gerard, Vice President of ITMA’s Americas Fleet. “Much like the FED EX Cup and Road to Dubai in golf, we expect interest to build over the next two seasons leading up to the four final regattas in 2019.” The ROAD TO THE WORLDS WAYPOINTS Series kicks off this summer with inaugural events both in the United States and Europe. In North America, ten 12mR yachts (along with sibling International Rule 2.4mR, 6mR and 8mR yachts) will compete at Newport MetreFest 2017, held in conjunction with New York Yacht Club’s 163rd Annual Regatta (June 9-11). The first Southern Europe fleet WAYPOINT event is the glamorous Les Voiles D’ Antibes in France (May 31-June 4), and the first Northern Europe fleet WAYPOINT event is the Kiel Classic in Germany (June 17-19), where a large fleet of Vintage 12mR yachts is expected to race.

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

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.
