Sail-World.com : WMRT heads to Frederikshavn, Denmark

WMRT heads to Frederikshavn, Denmark

WMRT ©
Frederikshavn becomes the host city of one of Denmark's biggest yachting events of the year, the World Match Racing Tour, where some of the finest yachtsmen will be in attendance. The city looks forward to welcoming the world with open arms over 27th to 31th of August, 2008.

Frederikshavn Municipality constitutes the peak of the European continent and thanks to its geographical location at the top of the Jutlandic peninsula; the area has become famous as the land of light and as the place where two oceans meet. Frederikshavn is one of the biggest ferry ports of Europe – a few hours by sea from Oslo in Norway and Gothenburg in Sweden.

Choosing Frederikshavn as the venue of Danish Open 2008 is part of a well-defined strategy to make Frederikshavn Municipality the natural location for major cultural and sporting events, and not least the obvious choice as the city hosting international yachting events. Frederikshavn has what it takes to host the event and will ensure that the Danish Open will be a unique experience to be remembered with joy by participants and spectators alike for years to come.

Frederikshavn is a municipality that has always lived from and with the sea having more than 60 miles (100 km) of glorious coastline. For generations the proximity of the sea has influenced the development in which Frederikshavn takes an active part. The two other major coastal cities, Sæby to the south and Skagen to the north, take pride in their past traditions of fishing, shipyards and other related maritime occupations.

Some of Denmark's finest beaches combine the potential for developing tourism and the events economy with a strong business community constantly renewing itself in line with time.

The water, the wind and a strong will are all elements which play a part in characterising Frederikshavn - the City of Energy. Four large, sea-based windmills are only the first step in a strategy that in 2015 will turn Frederikshavn into a city depending 100 per cent on renewable energies within power, heat and transport.

The City of Frederikshavn will become a full-scale science centre designed to show the world how to aim for a sustainable future without compromising progress and economic growth. At the same time, the City of Energy will help emphasise the fact that in our more globalised world – nobody can make a difference by themselves

Frederikshavn has something to show the world and the World Tour is proud to be part of the exciting advances Denmark is contributing to a greener environment for future generations. We would like to thank the municipality of Frederikshavn for welcoming the World Tour and wish them every success with their event and future developments.
