The Royal Norwegian Yacht Club is delightet to welcome competitors to the Grundig J/70 Nordic Championship 2017.
Dates: June 28th - July 1st
Venue: Hankø, Norway
The racing will take place just outside the island of Hankø and offers one of the best race courses in Norway, some would say one of the best race courses in the world. The island is located in the south-eastern part of Norway at the Oslo Fjord, not far from the Swedish border. The race course is exposed to sea breezes from the southwest and generally offers very good and fair sailing. The wind conditions are normally stable with no tidal problems. From Oslo to Hankø it`s about 60 minutes drive by car. Fredrikstad is the closest city with 70.000 inhabitants, just 15 minutes drive from Hankø. Hankø is known to be a summer resort with private summer homes and the Hankø Hotel & Spa.
KNS cooperates with Hankø Yacht Club (HYC), a private club, which was founded in 1954 by senior members of KNS aiming to promote international yacht racing at Hankø. The club has its picturesque clubhouse and a protected harbour on the island a few hundred metres from the mainland.
The organizers will provide a good social agenda for all involved. The Royal Norwegian Yacht Club welcomes you all to great experiences both on and offshore.
Notice of Race, entry form and further information will be published at the events webpage in the next few weeks.
