X-Yachts is sponsoring the ORC World Championship
04 – 12 August 2023
The ORC World Championships is being held from the 4th – 12th of August 2023 in Kiel. Only one month after the opening of the registration portal, 70 yachts from twelve nations registered in January, in the three divisions – Classes A, B and C – as well as a non-World Championship Class D.
X-Yachts made an early commitment to the ORC Worlds in Kiel. X-Yachts has had close ties to regatta racing for decades, such as being a partner of the ORC World Championship in 2011 and 2014, and is one of the shipyards that also owes its importance and size to the successes their designs have enjoyed on the race course. According to every measurement formula from IOR to IMS to ORC, X-Yachts have and continue to excel on the race course. And with the X-79, X-99, X-35 and X-41 designs, the Danish yard has also launched large one-design classes, three of which have even been recognized as such by World Sailing, the governing body of the sport.
“Especially in Northern Europe, we have always provided the largest fleets at major championships. This year I hope for 20 percent or more X-Yachts among the entries,” said Torsten Bastiansen, who will be racing his “Sydbank”, an X-35, in ORC Class C. “I hope that we can continue the successes we had with our previous boats, the X-332 ‘No Limits’ and an IMX-40 named ‘Veolia’. We can’t afford to miss a world championship on our doorstep,” Torsten Bastiansen said.
