Royal Swedish Yacht Club (KSSS) will host the first ever ORC Double Handed World Championship in July 2022.

With the start in the middle of Stockholm and an intricate navigation race through the archipelago before reaching the open sea, and sail around the island of Gotland it will be a true challenge for the competitors.

The championship is a part of the KSSS regatta Gotland Runt - the world's largest annual offshore race which has been organized by the Royal Swedish Yacht Club since 1937 and is regarded as the seasons highlight in offshore sailing in the Baltic.

As the ORC Double Handed fleet continues to gain strength, this first World's will be a natural highlight of the season. The race starts on Sunday 3rd of July 2022 and we expect the world's best boats and crews to gather at the start in Stockholm.

Being a part of Gotland Runt also means that all competitors will be a part of one of Stockholm's major summer events. As the boats start in the middle of the city, tens of thousands of spectators gather on the shores and in vessels all along the route through the archipelago. The Race village that will be situated in KSSS Djurgårdshamn in the middle of Stockholm, opens 30th June. For the sailors it will offer plenty of opportunities to make last preparations as well as mingle with friends, fans and fellow sailors. This will also make it easy for media to get access to the sailors before start.

The Race village will also be the hotspot for seminars and information on the topic of sustainability, mainly with a focus on the Baltic Sea.

But most of all we hope to see you in Stockholm to the summer. Warmly welcome!
