About the Grundig Sailing Cup

Grundig is the  proud sponsor of the Royal Yacht Clubs in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. In collaboration with the clubs Grundig Sailing Cup and the J/70 boats represents the most important initiative to revitalize sailing with faster boats that can be enjoyed by both families and youth in the sailing scene. The Grundig Sailing Cup complements a need for competition and brings together both sailing athletes and enthusiasts.

Our engagement in sailing is only in an early emerging phase. Our love of sailing is growing equally, and we are proud to continue our journey with the Nordic yacht clubs and accompanying J/70 sailing associations to offer exiting sailing moments for existing members as well as new aspiring sailors!

In 2017, the Grundig Sailing Cup will be executed throughout Scandinavia as we grow into Denmark with a 3 regatta concept. We will, together with our partners, stay loyal to the concept of offering more than just regattas – we will give you a unique sailing experience to share with your friends and family. We will also take the opportunity to state that the Open Nordic J/70 Championship for 2017 will be held at Hankø, Norway, from the 29th of June to the 1st of July.

Please follow us on facebook – “Grundig Sailing Cup” – to be given latest news and exclusive content.

We would love to see you sail with us in 2017, and always remember to use #grundigsailingcup to share your experience.

Until a few years ago, the area was the headquarters of the world-famous brewery, Tuborg. The RDYC is now operating from three marinas to assist more than 2200 members. It offers the entire specter of sailing activities for young and old alike, and caters to all interests.
