2018 World Cup Langenargen

Langenargen (Lake of Constance), GERMANY

1 July to 7 July

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

On behalf of the Yacht Club Langenargen e.V., we warmly welcome you to the “8mR World Cup”. The YCL will host this “World Cup” from the 25.06. – 07.07.2018 in its home port, the BMK Yachthafen Langenargen.

The Yacht Club Langenargen proudly looks back on a long and successful tradition in regatta sports. Not just in the field of yacht sailing, but also in the youth and junior classes the YCL is a stronghold. Along with traditional regattas, that are carried out year for year, it is extremely wonderful to welcome a new class to our club and above all to carry out the “8mR World Cup” 2018.

The „8mR World Cup“ is carried out for the second time on the Lake of Constance. 2006 the elegant yachts were guests in Lindau. That’s why it’s a special honor for us to host the “8mR World Cup” in our port of Langenargen.

Tradition is the emphasis of classical yachts and their owners/crew and that’s why we hope to undertake a successful, exciting and varied event. An opportunity for you to hop aboard with us at the 8mR World Cup! Raise your Sails with us. To everybody again a feel at home and enjoy your stay!
