Dear Fellow Multihuller´s!
Welcome to Copenhagen!
Now there are only a couple of weeks left till we meet in Copenhagen! It has been a very busy time for us but the joy to see you overshadow that. Some things like the harbour fees for us have been much more expensive than calculated so please be generous and drink a lot in the bar and buy many shirts to help up our economy. J
This is going to be a huge event in boat numbers and there is a very nice detail, two years ago Helsingørs seilforening, HAS, forbid Multihulls in there Round Sjaelland race. This was once the biggest sail race in the world in boat numbers, this year they had around 70 boats so IMM 2009 will be larger and we are talking Multihulls here!!!!! We are soon kicking 100 boats!!!!!
Well that is something we will not miss to inform the Danish press about later. We promise you!
Enclosed in this Newsletter you will find Information put together by the President of the Danish Multihull Organisation, DF, Per Mørch. You will find him in the Info Office to discuss everything!
We repeat the message about the harbour regulations below and enclose the map again!
There are some traffic regulations we like to inform about regarding the Port of Copenhagen. It is very important that you follow the rules and help us to give the city a good impression of all Multihuller´s. IMM will have personal at hand to give advice and there will also be a dedicated VHF channel to use.
On the enclosed map there are some traffic rules and for everyone that does not speak the wonderful language Danish I will try to translate:
  1. All yachts shall pass through Lynetteløpet.
  2. Passing Kronløbet is only allowed by commercial ships.
  3. Yacht shall pass east of yellow buoys.
  4. Sailing route to southern Frihavn.
  5. Passing in and out of the entrance of our harbour is not aloud when red lights flash due to ferry traffic. One of the occasions is at 17.00 when the Norwegian ferry leaves. Believe me – you do not want to meet that one!
  6. From the line and south are yachts only aloud to motor.
Please follow these simple rules and everyone will be happy!
There is so much to say about this magnificent city but I think it is better to let the real experts at Wonderful Copenhagen tell you about it. Log in to their webpage here!
Here is a useful tip from our friend Tito about Open WiFi, it is a map with free hotspots around Denmark. Maybe it can be of help for you.
There is still time to join IMM 2009! But hurry!
Have a really nice and safe journey to us in Copenhagen!
