The Royal Norwegian Yacht Club (KNS) is super happy to announce that the ISA Executive has decided to award the hosting of 2024 Soling World Championship to the KNS and the Norwegian Soling Association.
The event will be held at Hankø, in the Oslo fjord from the 24th to the 30th of June 2024.
Hankø has been Norway’s leading venue for international regattas for the last hundred years. Our cooperating club is Hankø Yacht Club (HYC). The club has its picturesque clubhouse and a new protected harbor on the island a few hundred meters from the mainland. Participating boats will be moored along the berths just outside the clubhouse.
The sailing will take place just off the island in open waters, where the wind and sea conditions are quite predictable. When the sea breeze fills in from the south this is for sure one of the best racecourses Norway has to offer.
The Royal Norwegian Yacht Club has a long tradition of organizing regattas at Hankø. The first regatta took place in 1906. The racecourses at Hankø are perfect for international championships, for yachts ranging from ocean racers to smaller keelboats.
