Information to sailors regarding the Opening Show, August 2, 2018.
The Opening Show takes place at “Havnepladsen” – see yellow circle. Please arrive by foot or light rail.
Flag carriers (1 from each nation): Meeting time at ‘Havnepladsen’ is 18:15 at the white tent. Look for volunteers carrying a poster with your country’s name.
All other athletes: meeting time at ‘Havnepladsen’ is 18:45. When you come to Havnepladsen look for a volunteer carrying a poster with your country’s name. Each nation must stand together in groups.
The opening show – live tv show – is from 19:30-app. 20:50.
During the show, each nation is presented. The flag carrier needs to walk app. 300 meters with a flag – 25 meters of these on a small ‘catwalk’. This is practiced upon arrival.
When each nation is presented – and the nation’s flag carrier enters the catwalk – the nation’s team will be filmed for tv and big screen. All team members should cheer, wave and look happy. Athletes will be standing during the show. We encourage athletes to bring flags and ‘dress up’.
The show is a mix of presenting the 85 participating nations, 2 music performances, 1 artistic performance, 2 speeches and small video clips.
If you have not yet told us who your nation’s flag carrier is, please do so asap to firstname.lastname@example.org
