The Wessel & Vett Cup

Marselisborg Yacht Club and Sailing Aarhus are hosting the Wessel & Vett Cup this summer in Marselisborg Harbor from the August 31st to September 3rd 2017.

The historic and beautiful 12mR boats will be participating in a three-day race inviting spectators to an unforgettable experience on the bay of Aarhus.

We estimate that about 10-15 boats from both Denmark, Germany, Norway and Finland will participate in the Wessel & Vett Cup, each with a crew of about 14-17 sailors. We estimate that about 4-5 boats are Danish.

Marselisborg harbor is very close to Aarhus Harbor, the city center and the new port area in Aarhus with Aarhus Ø and Dokk1 as center for many local visitors and tourists. Together with the fact that Wessel & Vett Cup takes place in Aarhus Festival we arrange a “Sail By” on Saturday the 2nd for the 12mR boats to sail through the new harbor area to showcase the boats and invite people to see the race in Marselisborg Harbor.
