Goal: know-how transfer and participation
The offshore racing scene is undergoing continuous change, thus demanding permanent updates on design, technical development, rating rules and race formats. The global Yacht industry in co-operation with racing teams and ambitious yacht owners is researching and developing new technologies with the aim to accelerate sailing speed. The International Yacht Forum of the German Owners Association is providing a platform for the exchange of this information for owners as well as for the yacht industry, where new trends are presented as well as important topics being discussed.
The first International Yacht Forum took place in Hamburg at the Chamber of Commerce in February 2010, attracting well over 220 participants from Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, the US, Spain, the Netherlands and the UK.
