UNEARTH ITS UNIQUE TREASURES WITH BWA YACHTING

Untamed natural beauty, worlds away from the high-octane glamour and cultivated sophistication of the Mediterranean, Scandinavia is not only a showcase of wild nature, but also home to some of the world’s most famous and inventive restaurants and stunning architecture. What Northern Europe may lack in temperature, it makes up for with history, culture and huge landscapes of unspoiled beauty. Sitting at anchor in a secluded Norwegian fjord with the near-midnight sun casting long shadows onto the imposing cliffs might be highly addictive.

Yachting facilities are great throughout Denmark and Norway and there are either marinas or fishing harbours with mooring facilities for yachts conveniently situated within a short distance of each other.

DO NOT MISS SAILGP’S SCANDINAVIAN DEBUT

Taking place in some of the world’s most iconic city waterfronts, SailGP is an international sailing competition where athletes from rival nations race head-to-head on the newly redefined F50 wing sailed catamarans, flying above the water on wave-piercing hydrofoils at speeds of over 50 knots. The Danish city of Aarhus will host the fourth event in the global championship’s second season. The grand prix event will mark the league’s first visit to Scandinavia plus the first opportunity for helmsman Nicolai Sehested and the Denmark SailGP Team presented by ROCKWOOL to race on home waters following the inauguration of the team in late 2019. The event HQ will be in Aarhus Ø, the city’s new vibrant waterfront district, with racing on the surrounding bay.

The SailGP Adrenaline Yachts program powered by BWA Yachting offers yacht owners or charter guests an unprecedented experience, both on and off the water.
