Invitation to ÅF Offshore Race (ÅFOR) and the European Championship in ORCi
The Royal Swedish Yacht Club, KSSS, will this year organize two great offshore races.
ÅF Offshore Race (ÅFOR) will start from the very city center of Stockholm on June 30, 2013. Our “race village” and mooring will be on Skeppsholmen, a small island just across from the Royal Palace. The race will take participating yachts through the unique Stockholm archipelago, around the island of Gotland followed by the traditional finish at KSSS´s home port in Sandhamn.
ÅFOR is one of the oldest offshore races in the world and attracts close to 300 participating yachts every year.
The European Championship in ORCi will take place in Sandhamn on August 3-10 2013. KSSS is expecting over 50 boats consisting of the absolute elite in European offshore racing. The European Championship in ORCi is an event recognized both nationally and internationally and is expected to attract a lot of attention from media and sailors alike.
For crews planning to do both events, KSSS will organize safe long term mooring in Sandhamn between regattas.
