”Register for the X-Yachts Gold Cup now!”
X-Yachts and Sailing Aarhus are fully aligned that the event in August is a reality. In the beginning of March, the event partners decided to postpone the cup till end of August to ensure the creation of an unforgettable Gold Cup with many participants.
At that time, there were more than 70 registered boats, but unfortunately several of them cancelled their registration because of the postponement. After the latest announcement and most recent launched regulations from the Danish authorities, all doubt is gone. X-Yachts Gold Cup in August is a reality!
“All sails are now set to fill in the list of participants. We would very much like to get 75 registered X’es on the list because then we know that it will be a great party and at the same time, we are able to handle the regulations”, Kræn Brinck Nielsen, CEO explains.
CEO at Sailing Aarhus, Jon Koch Hansen is occupied interpreting Danish and international rules. For Jon and Sailing Aarhus, not only the Gold Cup has been at stake, but many sailing events during the Summer of 2021. It is therefore important to be able to make the right decisions.
”We recently had a meeting with X-Yachts and are 100% unanimous to run the event as originally planned. We therefore want to encourage everyone to register for the Gold Cup now. We will close registration when there are 75 boats registered on the list, and we go for the principle first come, first served”, Jon explains.
”All depending on the development, we may want to create a waiting list”, Jon Koch Hansen concludes.
