2018 ISAF Sailing World Championships, Aarhus, Denmark (video)

Take a look at what is coming ahead in four years time at the Aarhus 2018 ISAF Sailing World Championships. Published on Sep 21, 2014

Aarhus, Denmark will host the 2018 ISAF Sailing World Championships and for Azad-Ahmad the preparations are well underway, “The ISAF Worlds in 2014 have inspired us in Aarhus to work even harder to prepare for the 2018. In 2017 we will be the European Capital of Culture. The theme is ‘rethink’. I hope that we together can rethink the future of sailing. We are looking forward to welcoming you in our new and rethought part of the city with a new sailing centre. “It is my hope that Aarhus in 2018 will have come from being the European Capital of Culture to being the world capital of sailing.” The second largest city in Denmark, Aarhus is situated on the eastern side of the peninsula of Jutland. With a history extending back to the Viking Age, Aarhus has sailing imprinted in its DNA. The competition venue will be established at a new Aarhus International Sailing Centre in Aarhus Yachting Harbour. Easily accessible and within walking distance of downtown Aarhus, the area is a favourite destination for residents and tourists alike who enjoy the restaurants and shops as well as clean bathing waters, fishing and fresh air. Aarhus has welcomed several world class sailing events in recent years including the 2008 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship, 2010 505 World Championship, 2011 A-Cat World Championship and the 2013 49er and 49erFX European Championships.
