Champagne sailing in the summer of 2022 in Denmark.

Aarhus has just been awarded the European Championships in 49er, 49erFX, and Nacra 17 from 5 – 10 July 2022.

In July 2022, the largest sailing championship will be held in Aarhus since the Sailing World Championships in 2018. From 5 to 10 July, three of the classes will thus revisit Aarhus for the European Championships in 49s, 49erFX, and Nacra 17. 

– I am pleased that we once again succeeded in attracting one of the greatest sailing events to Denmark in three of the classes in which Denmark has a strong position. In Denmark, we rarely experience world-class sailing up close. This is of great importance for us to promote our sport. Hopefully, our sailors will also benefit from the home ground advantage, says Line Markert, president of the Danish Sailing Association

– Aarhus is a wonderful center for sailing, and we look forward to the tremendous support from the Danish sailing community again. Ever since the epic Olympic win by Jonas Warrer, our Class and Denmark are forever linked, and we can’t wait to come back, says Jyrki Javi, President of the 49er Class.

200 crews from 35 nations

Up to 200 crews from over 35 different nations are expected to compete in 49er, 49erFX, and Nacra 17 in Aarhus, and in Sport Event Denmark, it is with great satisfaction that Denmark once again will host major, international sailing championships:

– Denmark and especially Aarhus has distinguished itself as a globally recognized host for sailing events. During his visit to the 2018 Sailing World Championships, IOC President Thomas Bach stated that the championship had the Olympic atmosphere. Denmark will recreate that atmosphere for the European Championships in 49er, 49erFX, and Nacra 17. The championships can also generate a much-needed foreign turnover for the tourism industry, says Lars Lundov, CEO of Sport Event Denmark.

Perfect sailing conditions

With perfect sailing conditions and the state-of-art International Sailing Center sailors can look forward to an epic experience.

– With three Olympic classes, the European Championships are the most significant event since the Hempel Sailing World Championship. We look forward to recreating the atmosphere we experienced in the harbor. Besides, we are pleased that the strategic collaboration with the City of Aarhus, and Sport Event Denmark is bearing fruit again, says Jon Koch Hansen, director of Sailing Aarhus.

– Aarhus has thoughtfully placed itself on the maritime world map, and I look forward to welcoming sailors from all over the world to Aarhus again. I look forward to the city and the bay coming to life, and for the sailing fans to gather for an international sailing event, says Rabih Azad-Ahmad, alderman for Culture and Citizen Service.

Arrival and Quarantine Information

The teams can arrive as early as they like. However we, as PYA will finance their mooring in the Gdynia Marina only from 2nd of July (the starting date of the whole GSD). Before that they will need to discuss leaving their equipment in the Marina with the Marina managers, which should not be a problem.   The current Polish restrictions are as follows:   Rules for travelers coming to Poland from the Schengen area   Travelers will be quarantined unless they test negative for COVID-19. The test will have to be performed no later than 48 hours before crossing the border. Test type: PCR or antigenic. The new rules will apply to all means of transport: collective and individual transport as well as crossing the border on foot. Travelers who have been quarantined in Poland will be able to take a test, the negative result of which will release them from quarantine.   Rules for travelers coming to Poland from outside the Schengen area   Each traveler will be placed in quarantine. A test performed in the country of origin of the person will not be released from quarantine. Travelers who have been quarantined may take a test in Poland, the negative result of which will release them from quarantine. Test type: PCR or antigenic.   The vaccine will release you from quarantine   People vaccinated against COVID-19 will be released from quarantine. This will apply to people who have been issued a certificate of vaccination with a vaccine that has been authorized in the European Union.

For competitors from outside the EU:

Legally, Polish borders remain closed for travelers from outside EU. But, there is a permit for sports: 9. foreigners whose arrival takes place in connection with the participation, as a competitor, member of the training staff, doctor, physiotherapist or referee, in international sports competitions organised on the territory of the Republic of Poland by an international sports federation operating in Olympic or Paralympic sports or another recognized by the International The Olympic Committee or organized by an international sports organization with a continental range belonging to such a federation or a Polish sports association, as well as accredited journalists, after documenting to the Border Guard officer the fact of the competition, the date and nature of participation in a relevant letter issued by the organiser of the competition or certified by the Polish sports association competent in given sport. Each of these cases is considered individually by the Polish Border Guards. So sailors from outside of EU that would like to join the event, need to provide a scan of their passport and details about their flight (or other way of crossing the borders), preferably directly to Anna (email Anna Kuder <a.kuder@pya.org.pl>). She will let the Border Guards know about our event and try to obtain permits for the crews.
