Welcome to the 60th Nordic Folkboat Gold Cup 2024 in Halmstad, Sweden
We are honored to extend an invitation to participate in the Nordic Folkboat Gold Cup 2024, hosted by Halmstad Sailing Club in association with the Swedish Folkboat Federation. This marks the second occasion that Halmstad Sailing Club has had the privilege of hosting this prestigious event, the first being in 2001. The regatta is scheduled to take place from July 6th to 12th in the charming coastal city of Halmstad, Sweden.
“It is with great pleasure and anticipation that we welcome sailors from around the world to Halmstad”, says Stefan Gottfridsson, Project Manager for the competition.
“We are eager to see a strong field of competitors and are confident that the event will be a showcase of exceptional sailing. Let’s make the 2024 event one to remember for its fierce competition and the shared joy of sailing”, continues Stefan.
Nestled along the beautiful Swedish coast, Halmstad is not merely a competitive sailing venue but a premier summer destination. With its stunning waters and picturesque beaches, the city offers an exceptional backdrop for both competition and leisure activities.
From Stockholm, a 5-hour drive or a quick domestic flight will bring you to this stunning coastal city. For participants coming from the south, it is a 1,5-hour drive, making the city exceptionally accessible for participants coming from south of Halmstad.
For those traveling from Denmark, a direct ferry from Grenå to Halmstad is available, offering additional convenience.
An array of cultural and social activities will complement the competitive aspects, making your stay in Halmstad truly unforgettable.
We strongly encourage you to save the date and make your accommodation arrangements well in advance. Your participation would undoubtedly enrich the legacy of the Nordic Folkboat Gold Cup, and we look forward to welcoming you to the idyllic setting of Halmstad in July 2024.
