The Sailing World Championships in Aarhus is going to be one of the world’s biggest sailing events as more than 1,500 yachtsmen from almost 100 countries will be visiting Aarhus at the same time. This places heavy demands on the logistics services.
”A sailing event like the Sailing World Championships involves gigantic logistics challenges and due to the short duration, everything needs to be in place within short time. Blue Water Shipping has more than 40 years of experience within this field. The company has a strong global network and knows Aarhus very well. We are therefore very pleased with this partnership”, says the Manager for the Sailing World Championships Klaus Natorp.
In Blue Water, the enthusiasm is also strong. ”We have been in Aarhus for many years and we find it natural to support the city and business community. Part of our strategy is to be ”Best in Town”, meaning that we want to be the best provider of logistics and transport solutions – also in terms of “event logistics”. Here we see our partnership with the Sailing World Championships as a unique opportunity”, says Jan Dam Poulsen, Director of Blue Water Aarhus.
Blue Water will be present during the Sailing World Championships which is part of the official Race Office, which the yachtsmen can contact for transport and logistics and for any questions they may have regarding freight.

- Shipping of equipment from and to worldwide destinations by air, sea, road and courier
