The ORC International World Championship will be organized by KDY and Egaa Sejlklub and will drawn on the competences of the two clubs setting up an efficient and experienced group of ground staff, Race Officers and event management.
The venue harbor will be Skovshoved Habour located a few kilometres north of Copenhagen. Skovshoved has just been expanded with close to 300 breths, and is a very well equipped harbour in Denmark, including a boatyard, chandlery and sailloft. KDY has one of its three clubhouses at Skovshoved.
Sailing for the inshore races will be Öresund, a well known race-water having hosted numerous Worlds, Europeans and Nordic championships. The offshore races will either go to southern
part of the Kattegat north of Helsingör, or into the area where Ôresund meets the Baltic Sea.
In 2016 KDY will celebrate its 150 years anniversary being the oldest yacht club in Denmark. The vision for the anniversary is to mark sailing as a sport for life, where generations can compete on equal terms, and KDY as the nationwide yacht club with activities all over Denmark, many of these planned and executed in cooperation with local clubs or with clubs sharing the same interest.
The anniversary season will include numerous sailing activities and social events with the ORC Worlds and a regatta for “old” Olympic classes as spearheads. The major social event will be a Grand Ball in the Copenhagen Opera with already confirmed participation from the Scandinavian Royal Families.
To us it was natural to join forces with Egaa Sejlklub as we share the same vision of one day having all Danish yachting boats racing ORC. And Egaa more than happily accepted the team work opportunities finding the Worlds as the most powerful signaling to doubtful Danish owners.
