Prior to 19th July
Most parts of the venue and some port facilities are temporarily set up for the event. It is therefore not possible to access the venue for training before the 19th July and sailing your boat into the Port of Aarhus, Boat Park 3 area is strictly forbidden.
Launching of support boats is available in the neighbouring harbours of Egaa Marina, Marselisborg Yacht Harbour and Kaløvig Bådelaug. No registration is necessary with Aarhus 2018, local regulations and tariffs apply. See the Training-section on this website for further information.
After 19th July
Venue will open 19th of July, where all boat parks will be accessible. Entering and leaving the harbour from Boat Park 3 will be limited due to the presence of commercial traffic. In- and outgoing traffic will be regulated by an Event Harbour Marshall.
Should your support boat already be in the water prior to 19thJuly, you must register your boat at the Race Office in the Navitas building to gain sailing access to the harbour area around Boat Park 3 and the refuelling station.
