X-Yachts Gold Cup 2013 Heads Back to Copenhagen

14th November 2012
X-Yachts Gold Cup 2013 Heads Back to Copenhagen

#xyachts – X-Yachts is inviting all owners to the 2013 X Yachts Gold Cup, in Copenhagen from July 17-20

The 2013 X-Yachts Gold Cup will be hosted by the KDY (Royal Danish Yacht Club).

The Gold Cup was last sailed in Denmark in 2008, when 120 X-Yachts and 1,200 sailors made it an event to remember. The organisers say they are confident that the 2013 Gold Cup will prove to be even more spectacular.

There will be racing for Family Classes A&B, and Sports Classes C&D. If there are sufficient entries, racing will also be held for the spectacular over 50ft class, with pursuit contests to guarantee exciting finishes for all.

The X-35s race for their Nordic Championship, the X-41 will host their European Championship during the event, and the X-99 fleet has a special Gold Cup contest.
