UPDATE: October 14, 2020
The 2021 12mR World Championship, organized by NJK will be held on August 14th-22nd in Helsinki, Finland. At this time, we are proactively planning for the possibility that continued pandemic restrictions may limit the scope of our events. Therefore, the core Championship will consist of a 12mR Worlds sailing regatta only. Registration fees will be adjusted accordingly to reflect a reduction in social activities.
Registration for the 2021 12mR World Championship Regatta:
For those who have already registered for the 2020 event, re-registration is not required. Please review your current registration. New entries should register here. The updated Notice of Race with adjusted fees, and a new registration link will soon follow.
Registrations for the 2021 12mR World Championship Social Program:
In the case of eliminated or reduced pandemic-related restrictions, we are also planning a more extensive program of social events. We certainly hope that this will be the case and will announce details as circumstances develop, likely in mid-late spring 2021.
The 2021 12mR World Championship Committee will provided additional information re: new lower registration fees, accommodation alternatives and other event-related information in the near future. In the meantime…
I hope that you all stay safe and healthy,

ABOUT THE 2021 12 METRE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP:
The International 12 Metre Class’ 2021 World Championship will be held in Helsinki from August 14- 22, hosted by Finland’s premier yacht Club, Nyländska Jaktklubben, NJK. The active Baltic 12mR Fleet is 16 yachts strong and primarily comprised of Vintage (Pre-WWII) Twelves.
ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL 12 METRE CLASS:
The 112 year-old International 12 Metre Class encompasses a living history of racing yacht design by the world’s foremost naval architects including Olin Stephens, Clinton Crane, William Fife III, Philip Rhodes, Johan Anker, Ben Lexcen and more who pushed their designs to the very limits of innovation. The resulting boats represented the pinnacle of yacht development from 1907-1987 for the highest levels of international sailing competition– the Olympic Games (1908-1920) and the America’s Cup (1958-1987).
