The restart of the X-79!
It all started 43 years ago, when the X-79 spread her wings, flew away and laid the foundation of X-Yachts. The X-79 was a successful Northern European one-design class, that is still active in a few countries.
Together with X-Yachts CEO Kræn Nielsen, Jens Hedegaard from Kolding wants to restart the Danish X-79 club, with the goal to have their own class at the Palby Fyn Cup in Denmark.
At the first club meeting, at the yard in Haderslev, Kræn Nielsen, together with Birger Hansen, welcomed 34 enthusiastic X-79 sailors, including a handful of X-Yachts employees.
At the meeting, it was possible to have a look at the very first X-79, which Birger Hansen have spent the last 3 years refurbishing.
