Fredrikstad, Norway

10 August to 20 August

The 2017 Worlds will be hosted by KNS - The Royal Norwegian Yacht Club. Like in 2008, we will sail from Hankø Yacht Club, one of the finest locations for yacht racing in Norway. This 8-Metre World Cup promises to be very special as our Class will be celebrating the 80th Birthday of H.M. King Harald, our honory life president and owner/driver of the 1938 Johan Anker 8-Metre Sira. Please join us with your boat and be part of what we hope and expect to be huge turnout and a very special celebration of 8-Metre sailing.
