Welcome to Zoom 8 World Championship 2017

Sweden, Helsingborg, and Råå Jolleklubb whish all Zoom8 sailors welcome to the 2017 World Championship 30 July – 5 August on our wonderful sailing arena in Öresund just south of Helsingborg and Helsingør. 

Our base is in Råå Marina which is part of the old fishing village Råå. Öresund is the strait that forms the border between Sweden and Denmark and is one of the busiest waterways in the world. The race area is situated just outside Råå Marina and is well separated from the commercial traffic. The area has experienced dinghy racing for many years and have hosted some great national and international regattas. From Råå Marina you can easily walk to the village of Råå and it’s a fifteen-minute drive from the city of Helsingborg to the harbour.

Our facilities are easily accessible by highway from Denmark via the bridge between Copenhagen – Malmö and also by highway from Norway through Gothenburg, and by highway from Stockholm Sweden where ferries from both Finland and Estonia are landing. The highways passing through Helsingborg has exits about 5 km from the harbour. More information of Helsingborg and Råå may be found on the
