The 2020 courses

Vegvisir Race offers five races on three courses in 2020. A long and demanding doublehanded challenge that rounds the island of Fehmarn in Germany. The course is the same as last year where we got a lot of positive feedback from the participants. 

Brand new is the 155 NM course. It's open for both doublehanded and singlehanded participation. It's a circumnavigation of the islands Falster and Lolland. Even though the course is hold close to the shores it has some open and exposed legs. The combination of tight inshore and demanding offshore sailing is the signature of Vegvisir Race and it will indeed be found in the course. To our knowledge the 155 singlehanded race is the longest non-stop singlehanded event in Northern Europe. Please check THE STATUTES to see if you and your boat is qualified to participate.  

Finally the 85 NM is also new. Compared with 2018 and 2019 the new 2020 course is less exposed and thus we hope it will appeal to either senior sailors or to newcomers who want to try night sailing or singlehanded sailing for the first time. 

Remember that we - as always - have the full moon up to shine on the race courses during the event.
