X-Yachts Gold Cup 2021 in Aarhus!
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.
More than 100 Danish built and well-polished sailboats from X-Yachts – most of them in the order of millions, will glow along the bridges of Aarhus Ø in May 2021, and the event makers expect 1,200 enthusiastic sailors from more than 15 nations. In the bay of Aarhus, there will be competition in family as well as in racing classes, and on shore old friends meet and socialize. As always, the X-Yachts Gold Cup will get a lot of international attention and media coverage.
”In 2019, we held our Gold Cup in Haderslev with huge success. All our employees, more or less, were involved, and it was a fantastic experience to create that big an event in connection with our 40th anniversary”, CEO Kræn Brinck Nielsen explains.
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.
” We are one big X-Yachts family, and especially communities have proven to be very valuable”, Kræn elaborates. “It is of the essence that X-Yachts owners can meet and enjoy a couple of days with like-minded and to have fun on the water. These kinds of experiences will always be remembered, and Aarhus is a perfect place to meet and it is a charming city with many cultural attractions…something for everyone”, Kræn ends.
The facilities in and around Aarhus International Sailing Centre are quite unique – meaning that all participants can gather and lie side by side with their X’es around the centre, and the regatta can be followed closely from the terraces and the lounge area.
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.
The date for the event is 21 – 23 May, and shortly the registration module will be open on the website of Sailing Aarhus where you will also find a detailed programme.
