Marselisborg Yacht Club hosts Wessel & Vett Cup 2018

Marselisborg Yacht Club hosts Wessel & Vett Cup 2018

In late august, when Marselisborg yacht Club hosts this years’ international yacht race, Wessel & Vett Cup, you will have an unique possibility to explore the classic and most beautiful 12 meter yachts racing on the Bay of Aarhus.

This summer the waters will be welcome the Wessel & Vett Cup 2018 who has chosen, once again, to race in the picturesque surroundings of Marselisborg situated in the heart of Aarhus. The organizing authority is Marselisborg Sailing Club and Sailing Aarhus in conjunction with the International 12mR class association (ITAM) and the Marselisborg Marina. 

Choosing Aarhus as host for the Wessel Vett Cup 2018 seems apparent for several reasons. In terms of skill and competition Aarhus is unique within the sport of sailing. The city is home to some of the greatest Danish sailing talents and has proved to be more than capable of staging international sailing events and in 2018 Aarhus is hosting the Sailing World Championships.

The race will take place August 30th to September 2nd 2018 and be part of the annual Aarhus Festival when the city is buzzing with life.
