Saturday and Sunday, March 1-2, 2014, organizers from the Royal Danish YC (KDY), members from ISAF Offshore & Oceanic Committee and Offshore Racing Congress (ORC) will convene a special series of seminars and workshops to promote greater participation in offshore sailing in the Baltic region and northern Europe. Activities will be held at KDY facilities at Rungsted Harbour, 25 km north of Copenhagen.

Until today 29 national representatives from 8 countries have confirmed their participation in the 'Offshore Seminar 2014'. If you are interested, you can find information on the RDYC website (http://kdy.dk/news_reader.php4?uniq_id=2422 ) about program and participation.

'We believe that this seminar will help get sailors and race organizers from several countries in the region together to share ideas on race schedules and formats, and ways of helping each other to bring more sailors out racing,' says KDY Vice Commodore Lars Bo Ive. 'This event has already proven popular, with representatives committed to come here from as far east as Finland to as far west as the Netherlands, and everywhere in between. So we think we have found the right topics for discussions.'

     
Saturday’s sessions will be targeted for senior national representatives to discuss rating rule development, boat measurements, safety training, ISAF Classification system, review of major offshore races in the region and innovations and techniques in race management.

Sunday’s sessions will cover similar topics, but will be oriented more for boat owners and sailors, who can benefit from the discussions made on the previous day. There will also be a discussions around sail design, trends in new materials and improvements made to the NORLYS system in Norway. This will be followed by discussions on several prominent races of the region in 2014: the new Royal Ocean Cup in Copenhagen, the ÅF Offshore Race in Stockholm, and the 2014 ORC World Championship.

There are by now already over 150 entries from 16 countries entered for ISAF’s official Offshore World Championship held this year in Kiel in August.

'For race organizers, a major outcome of this weekend will be coordinating scheduled events through the next years so that there are as few conflicts as possible,' says co-organizer Thomas Nilsson, chairman of the Norwegian Offshore Racing Club. 'We feel this is important so boat owners and sailors can enjoy multiple regattas, and their interest can be maximized towards the major events.

These include regattas like the Fyn Cup, Faerder Race, Kieler Woche, the AF Offshore Race, the ORC World and European Championships, the Nord Stream Race, etc.'

Further participants can find information, program, entry form and contacts here: http://kdy.dk/news_reader.php4?uniq_id=2422 ; Latest registration date is 21st February.
