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).
