Together with Sailing Aarhus, X-Yachts organizes their recurrent event; The X-Yachts Gold Cup 2021. In 2019, the event was held at the yard, on the same occasion celebrating their 40th anniversary. Now, time has come to do it in Aarhus.

During the past months, X-Yachts and Sailing Aarhus have been in dialogue, and with an impressive list of references for organizing events, X-Yachts’ CEO, Kræn Brinck Nielsen has no doubt that Sailing Aarhus will succeed doing this job.

We currently need to renew ourselves, and the cooperation with Sailing Aarhus in 2021 makes sense because they have an extensive experience in international event-making”, CEO Kræn Brinck Nielsen explains.

CEO, Jon Kock Hansen is enthusiastic about the cooperation: ”It really makes good sense to create this event together with X-Yachts, not least because we have the same set of values. We want our guests to feel comfortable when they take part in an event with us. In close cooperation with X-Yachts, we will guaranteed get a fantastic event and we really look forward to kicking off the preparation process. We are 100% ready to go ahead now”, Jon expresses enthusiastically.

Previous X-Yachts Gold Cups

X-Yachts has had a long history of organizing Gold Cup events. In the beginning of the story of Gold Cups, the leading dealers were supposed to take turns on this event - and so they did for many years. From 2011 and onwards, the yard found it more suitable to take on the responsibility -  not least, because the potential participants are and were primarily located in Scandinavia and Northern Europe. And it was finally decided only to do the event every second year.
