If today’s two practice races are any indication, the 2021 EVLI 12mR World Championship will surely provide an exciting week of racing for both sailors and spectators. NJK Commodore Mats Welin said: “Although this will be the first time the 12mRs will hold their World Championship in Finland, NJK has a long history with the Class including participation at our 50th and 75th Anniversary celebrations in 1911 and 1936. Now during our 160th Anniversary year we are very pleased to host the International Twelve Metre Class and proud that two competitors will race under the NJK flag.”
President of the International Twelve Metre Association, Paul Buttrose said: “It is an honor for the International Twelve Metre Class to be hosted by NJK and racing in Helsinki. This Vintage fleet is the most widely-traveled and every boat has a fascinating history. Adding meticulous preparation and such a high standard of competition secures their recognition as “the backbone of our Class.”
