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.
