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.
