The International 12 Metre Class’ 2021 World Championship will be held in Helsinki from August 14- 22, hosted by Finland’s premier yacht Club, Nyländska Jaktklubben, NJK. The active Baltic 12mR Fleet is 16 yachts strong and primarily comprised of Vintage (Pre-WWII) Twelves.

NYYC Queens Cup

The Queen’s Cup is one of NYYC’s oldest and most prestigious trophies. It was formally given by Queen Elizabeth II of England and formally presented to the Club by the British Ambassador in 1953, when the former King’s Cup (1912) was retired. The Queen’s Cup has a unique starting system in that each yacht may start within a 2-minute window of the starting gun and their actual elapsed time will be used to calculate their corrected time.

NYYC RACE WEEK & 166th Annual Regatta presented by Rolex+

This biennial race week is now in its 12th running, and has become a favorite of sailors due to the spectacular sailing conditions, unparalleled onshore hospitality and the great race management provided by the Club’s all-volunteer race committee. True race weeks are a rarity in today’s time-crunched world and the Club is proud to keep that traditional alive with six days of racing and activities. Different course configurations and sailing areas, such as buoy racing and mid-distance courses, will make the week lively for competitors, while the Stadium Sailing will allow spectators to watch the racing from Fort Adams.


KDY welcomes all 12mR sailors back in Øresund which is the home field for most of the Danish 12mR class racers. It is an honor and a privilege for the Club once more to host a big fleet of Metre boats and the whole organization in Skovshoved.


These racing dates have been cancelled by the New York Yacht Club.
The event will be combined with NYYC Race Week sponsored by Rolex.

America’s oldest annual regatta, NYYC’s 166th will feature three great days of racing including the separately scored Around-the-Island Race, two awards parties and one fabulous regatta dinner. Competition will take place in IRC/ORC, PHRF and one-design classes, as well as for classic yachts and multihulls.
