2021 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

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.

WESSEL & VETT METRE CUP

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.
