Edinburgh – Kiel Race 2013

ASV Offshore Challenge 2013

Every other year the Royal Forth Yacht Club are pleased to play host to the yachts and competitors of the Helgoland race.  In 2011 some 30 German boats took part and for the first time it was possible to track the boats as they raced across from Helgoland thanks to satellite tracking devices installed on every competitor.

Following this race and a few day enjoying the club and the City of Edinburgh, there is a return race to Keil for those boats wishing to race back across the North Sea.  This race is an open event and British boats are encouraged to take part.

The race is open to:

ORC-International, ORC-Club and IRC measured territory suited Yachts as well as territory suited One-Design yachts, as far as 5 registrations per class are reached

Start: EDINBURGH (GB), MAY 26, 2013   Finish: KEIL Lighthouse (GER)


  • Best club vessel on corrected time
  • Class rating
  • Special and challenge cups
