Baltic Sea Challenge 2011

9 Yachts in close racing off Elsinore - Denmark's Swan 45 Tarok 7 with overall lead in IRC class

As part of the "Swan Challenge" as of the "Baltic IRC Circuit" the invitational "Baltic Sea Challenge" took place off the beatiful coastline of Elsinore, Denmark between the 11th and 13th of August.  9 Yachts from three baltic Nations made it to Elsinore to enjoy two days of close racing. Organized by the Elsinore Yacht Club, the teams found almost perfect sailing conditions, a keen social program and good food next to the Royal Quay. Royal Danish Yacht Club’s yacht "Tarok 7", a 45' Swan with a team beeing lead by Erik Berth who were awarded as winners of the competition  in class IRC.

With the norwegian Cookson 50 "Camilla" competing off Elsinore, the crew of Ole Martin Vordahl  delivered a good performance on a more than stunning yacht. Beeing canting- keeled, the sheer power of "Camilla" once again provided cutting edge sailing, simply spectacular! We are very happy to see "Camilla" as a steady racing companion in the Baltic- Circuit. Make sure to check back for a detailed feature of the Cookson 50 "Camilla"!

The Baltic Sea Challenge 2012 will take place from Elsinore August 10-12. The event will be held in “The Cultural Harbour of Elsinore”. Make sure to reserve this weekend. As stated by the organizers, the Baltic Sea Challenge once again will be "a great sailing event with  participation from a lot of boats from our surrounding countries". Nothing to add from this point. A special invitation will be sent our within shortly. There will be a limit of 50 yachts.
