Register for MBBR19

News this year:

A sports boat class. To attract many of the sportier boats around Scandinavia, we’ll facilitate a separate class and start for boats with max 10 meter LOA, gennaker on centerline sprit, and defined as Racer/Sport (R/S) by SRS. The lower limit is still SRS >1.000. We look forward to 20-30 boats battling it out for the first “Scandinavian sports boat champion” :-)

Typical boats are Melges 24/32, FarEast 28R (the Swedish class have committed to come), Farr 280, Farr 30 with sprit, Pauger 30, T780, Shaw 9, Elliott 9SS, GP26 and similar…

We also have a collaboration with Skagen Race. So no matter where you are, there will be a 100′ overnight race starting Wednesday evening to finish in Skagen Thursday. Max 300 boats accepted.

A huge party Thursday night, before we run an informal feeder race to Marstrand on Friday. And then on to the normal agenda.

When you finally have the boat in race mode and the crew on board, why not go for a 5 days package with great racing and some of Scandinavia’s biggest sailing parties?

Note that there are separate registrations for Skagen Race and Marstrand Big Boat Race. If you join both you will be on the starting list for the feeder race.

    Riktigt roligt med sportbåtsklass! Mitt mål i vinter får helt enkelt bli att få igång Paugern lagom till BBR, detta vill man ju inte missa!

      Jag ser fram emot den fighten. Vilka andra båtar av samma kaliber skall vi hoppas på?`

        Vi måste ju försöka locka hit carmapolice och Elliot 9:an!! Vore så läckert att se dom på marstrandsfjorden, Och dom gör sig nog fint förtöjda i marstrand med! :-) Sen är ju FD Ms freckles farr30 utrustad med peke så den borde ju direktadresseras. Ett fält med Fareast 28 or och Per Svanberg i Fareast 31:an vore kul att se där med! Och allt sportigt på västkusten har ju världens chans att få segla mot liknande båtar, missa inte tillfället!
