Gold Cup 2012 - Invitation

Welcome to Gold Cup 2012 in Sandhamn!

Sandhamn is situated in the outskirts of the beautiful Stockholm Archipelago and during this time of year it is full of life and activities. Just outside Sandhamn is the perfect venue for racing on open waters.


July 25 – 29, 2012 Registration and measurement checks will be performed on the 25th of July. The races will be held Thursday 26th to Sunday 29th, six races are planned.


You will have the possibility to launch your boat at KSSS in Saltsjöbaden, free of charge. Please note that it is approximately 25 NM to sail from Saltsjöbaden to Sandhamn. A second option is to launch the boat at Bullandö Marina, Värmdö for a fee. The distance between Bullandö and Sandhamn is approximately 10 NM.


All Folkboats will have their mooring together in the marina at Sandhamn. This is free of charge.

Tender boats:

If you wish to bring your own tender boat to the regatta, you are welcome to stay in the marina at Lökholmen, you get a 50 % discount of the mooring fee during the event. Please contact the Harbour Master (sandhamn@ksss.se) to make a reservation.


All sailors are welcome to stay at the KSSS Camp at Lökholmen. These cottages are used for sailing camps for children during the summers. The cottages have eight beds in each room, just bring your sleeping bags and sheets! Toilets and showers are close by. Breakfast and packed lunch can be provided if you wish. The cost for this accommodation is SEK 320 per person per night including breakfast and packed lunch. There is also a possibility to camp with tents. There is a shuttle between Sandhamn and Lökholmen, free of charge that runs at least once per hour, more during rush hours.

Some other information that can be interesting to know is that the shuttle between Lökholmen and Sandhamn doesn’t takes more than 5 minutes and for those who will bring some relatives/friends who will not participate in the racing it can be good to know there is several options to visit Stockholm from Sandhamn. There are boats (and buses from Stavsnäs) going back and forth to Stockholm, many times a day. It might be a good idea to book the accommodation well in time

Here is a simple map (pdf 622 kB) (albeit with links to Googlemaps for the "hotspots") to give some understanding of the location of Sandhamn. Unfortunately the map starts from Saltsjöbaden but for your information Saltsjöbaden is real close to Stockholm, just 15-20 minutes to the east.
