2023 ORC Double Handed Europeans now open for entries

6 December 2022

  The Helsingør Sailing Club is pleased to announce that the registration and entry process for the 2023 ORC DH European Championship is now open. The event will take place from 10-17 June 2023 and is being held under the authority of the Offshore Racing Congress (ORC), the Danish Sailing Association along with Helsingør Sailing Club.

The venue is located at Helsingør Marina in the beautiful town of Helsingør with the Unesco Heritage Kronborg Castle (shown in photo above) as the closest neighbor. The club has existed for almost 90 years, currently has more than 500 members, and has an ambition of further developing the club with dedicated activities in the areas of a youth sailing, a general Sailing School and sailing activities focused on both women and aging sailors.

Since 1947 Helsingør Sailing Club has hosted the Sjælland Rundt Race. While starting small just after World War II, the race grew to more than 2000 boats in the early eighties where every Danish sailor wanted to try out what has been known locally as the “Marathon of the Sea.” The race is still developing and this year will host activities stretching over a full week that include One-Design J70 racing, the traditional Sjælland Rundt Race and the ORC DH European Championship.
