With a wealth of experience in hosting world-class sailing regattas including the Americas Cup World Series, Volvo Ocean Race, and of course WMRT Match Cup Sweden; Gothenburg city and its people embrace the sport of sailing and provide a warm welcome for this WMRT World Tour level event. In the heart of Gothenburg’s archipelago, GKSS provides challenging conditions for crews to navigate the rocky waters and work the wind shifts and shadows to really test match racing skill.
As with the majority of World Match Racing Tour events, WMRT Gothenburg Match Cup will be sailed in high performance M32 carbon fiber catamarans provided by the Organising Authority and therefore teams are required to hold a valid M32 Match Racing License to sail in this event. For teams without a license there will be an M32 Match Racing License Clinic held just across the water on the island of Hönö at Cape Crow Yacht Club May 9-11th. For further details on licensing and to book a place at one of our training or license clinics please visit m32world.com/m32-academy.
WMRT Gothenburg Match Cup will run May 12-14th, 2017 and is now open for entry.Request Entry More About GKSS Match Race Licensing
