The KDY (Royal Danish Yacht Club) is hosting the 2021 J/80 World Championship in Copenhagen, Denmark. They have already postponed the event once due to the Covid-19 pandemic issues in Europe. It is now expected to be hosted in July.

"Hygge" (enjoying life's simple pleasures) isn't everything, but...

As the National Geographic so aptly explains it, "Denmark's capital has become the urban overlord of doing things the right way. They call it the happiest city in the world. So, what's the secret? Image-wise, everything in recent years seems to have gone the city's way. The omnipresence of the Danish concept hygge has helped paint it as a place of candlelit good times..."

It certainly has, and it is. But "hygge" isn't everything. We'd like to add 1) a positive outlook and 2) sailing of course!

Staying positive and moving ahead in our preparations

As many events have been moved into the month of September - lately even the Kiel Week we still believe that the J/80 World Championship in July will be OK. Who knows this may even be the racing season opening event! How is that for at title? We are certainly working hard in order to have all our ducks (and docks) in a row for when you get here. We are confident the J/80 Worlds will be the start of the international racing season here.

There is very strong interest in the regatta as it's an "Open" event. The entries are coming in as well are international requests for rental boats, and in the upcoming weeks you will read more about accommodation and travel arrangements as well as boat rental opportunities and you may even find out why the Spaniards cannot win the trophy - again!
