Aarhus, Denmark To Host 2011 Melges 24 European Championship - 22 to 28 July

9 December 2010 - From International Melges 24 Class Chairman Riccardo Simoneschi

Dear Melges sailors,
As promised we are announcing the new date and location for the 2011 European Championship to be held in Aarhus Denmark from the 22th to 28th of July.



We thank the Aarhus Sailing Club and Sailing Academy Aarhus and all their members for their prompt response to fulfil the desire of the executive to keep this championship in the Scandinavian area as scheduled.  This helps us to reinforce the "COUNTRIES TURN OVER" that has been naturally endorsed by the Class in the recent past.

The choice of dates has been difficult to ensure we do not to overlap with other existing events but we have worked hard to honour the desire of the World Council to minimise the number of days of holiday that competitors need to take to compete at the events.  The agreed schedule for the event is as follows:-

Friday 22 July - Registration and crew weigh in
Saturday 23 July - Registration and crew weigh in, Practice Racing (first warning at 1000), Skippers' Briefing, Opening Ceremonies
Sunday 24 July - Early morning crew weigh in, Championship Racing (first warning at 1000)
Monday 25 July - Championship Racing (first warning at 1000)
Tuesday 26 July - Championship Racing (first warning at 1000)
Wednesday 27 July - Championship Racing (first warning at 1000)
Thursday 28 July - Championship Racing (first warning at 1000, no starts after 1500), Haul out, Awards and Closing Ceremonies

The hosting club has a long proven experience and the Race Committee will be a "first choice" one with Denmark being one of the TOP HOSTING COUNTRIES for sailing events in 2011 with a relevant list of World Championships to be held in the country next year.  Our IMCA Championship Coordinator Hank Stuart will be the event PRO working with the Aarhus Team, headed by Race Officer B°rge Dammand.


The IMCA Executive thank both France and Italy for also stepping forward promptly with proposal to host this event if needed and we promise them we will soon be sailing in their national waters.

It is a very positive remark to notice that the Melges 24 Class is so welcome that in under than 3 weeks time it has been presented with 3 important countries to backup such a big event on such short notice.

Thank you all again.
All the best
Riccardo Simoneschi
