As a volunteer at the SWC2018 you will become a part of a unique community. A community that will create a world-class event. The city, the venue and Aarhus Bay will be decked out and ready to party. We must give the thousands of visiting sailors and guest from all corners of the world an experience of hospitality and excitement they will not soon forget. The SWC2018 is our opportunity to spread the joy, passion and sense of community that the world of sailing offers to a wider audience.
A total of 1,500 sailors from over 100 nations will come to Aarhus to compete for the Worlds medals, along with the chance to qualify for the Olympics in Tokyo 2020. But that is not all. While the world championships are happening, we will have a maritime public festival. We will fill all of Aarhus Ø with festive activities for the whole family. And our goal is to reach 400,000 guests during the 14 days of the event.
That is why we need volunteers of all ages and with all kinds of skills, so we can create a fantastic Worlds and a wonderful maritime public festival. Whether you are familiar with the world of sailing or have never seen a race boat, we need your help! The essential thing is that you are merry, energetic and want to make the SWC2018 a world-class event.
An event such as the SWC2018 cannot happen without volunteer enthusiasts. The volunteers play a vital part and that is why we have developed a volunteer policy, which is to make sure that the event will be fantastic for the many hundreds of volunteers that carry the event. You can read an excerpt of the policy here:
The Hempel Sailing World Championships Aarhus 2018 will be a mega event that will leave a massive mark on sailing in Denmark. The event will manifest Denmark as a professional sport and event organizer. It’s important to state, that the event can only be carried out with the help from the many volunteers who will make this event memorable for sailors and guests from all over the world.
Together we will create a world-class sailing experience and a maritime festival at the newly established harbor at Aarhus Ø and Aarhus new International Sailing Center.
The volunteers play a key role in the making of a great event for all stakeholders. Therefore we’ve developed a volunteer policy to ensure that we meet the needs of the volunteers and create the best conditions to be a volunteer at the Hempel Sailing World Championships Aarhus 2018.
