X-Yachts Anniversary Gold Cup 2019


10 June 2019

  The X-Yachts sailors got superior sailing conditions on the final race day of the X-Yachts Gold Cup 2019. Shifty winds of 15-20 knots with sunny spells was the best possible way to close the ball on water - awaited by a prize giving party in the boat yard hall on shore in Haderslev in the evening.

The X-Yachts Gold Cup might be a friendly regatta, but when the sailors are on the race course the competitive spirit awakes within all, and focus sharpens. The Sports-class A and B sailed on a two laps windward/leeward course today and the Family-classes and over 50 ft-class were sailing a 9 nm long distance course around Bågø in Lillebælt.

In the Family A-class the German X-332 Lotta owned by Martin Plaetzer took the win. German X-362 Solidix (Marc Schweers) and Danish X-40 Julie (Torben Kornum) share the second spot. Birger Hansen co-founded X-Yachts 40 years ago and now here at the X-Yachts Gold Cup 2019 on home waters; he took the win in his Xc 50 called Xc-L in the Over 50 ft-class.

After a tactical demanding day on the water the winners of the Sports classes have been found. The Danish X-37 team on Ventoux owned by Niels Nørgaard Pedersen had a good day and can call themselves winners in the Sports Class A.
Sports Class B was won by German Sportsfreund sailing in the X-41, owned by Axel Seehafer
