Three top ORC championship meets in Denmark, Italy and Greece would offer the highlights in the year 2016. The biggest of these meets would be the yearly ORC World Championship, which is now in its eighteenth year of crowning the top in the sport of inshore as well as offshore racing in an event approved by the World Sailing.
The edition, this year, would take place from 15th to 23rd July, and is being co-arranged by Egaa Yacht Club and Royal Danish Yacht Club, drawing on the merged talent of the two clubs to establish an experienced and efficient group of ground staff, Race Officers as well as event management.
The venue harbor would be Skovshoved Harbor situated a few kms north of Copenhagen, Denmark. Skovshoved has just been flourished with close to three-hundred berths, and is one of the top equipped harbors in Denmark, including a chandlery, sailloft and boatyard. One of KDY’s 3 clubhouses is also settled at Skovshoved.
Inshore races sailing will be on Öresund, a popular racing place having arranged several Nordic championships and World and Europeans meets. The offshore meets would either go to southern part of the Kattegat and the north of Helsingör, or probably into the place where Ôresund meets Baltic Sea.
Chairman of ORC, Bruno Finzi told that after the top success of their events in this year and a increasing number of sailors using the ORC system, they expect their 2016 meets to be quite competitive and popular. They wish everyone a fantastic new year, both on and off the water, and look forward to seeing great racing at these and other ORC events throughout the year.
