Maxus Challenge – A new concept for a sailing meeting
After we announced that this year the Northman-Cup Regatta is not going to be held, we received numerous e-mails, in which you asked us not to give up on organizing the event that gathers the enthusiast of Maxus ships. Most of people who contacted us appreciated the unique atmosphere created by our friendly community of sailors and the opportunity to try out one’s sailing skills on the decks of Maxus yachts. And so, after long discussions and the analysis of your expectations we decided to organise a meeting targeted at all sailors, who would like to open the season with us and take part in an event like no other. We called it the „Maxus Challenge”
The participants of the event will be able to try out Maxus yachts, which are available in the offer of Ahoj Czarter. We would also like to invite all the owners of Maxus units with their boats.
The goal of the meeting is an effective kick-off of the sailing season in a community, which has competed or is planning to compete on Maxus units. The formula of the event includes lectures on effective sailing with Maxus units and trimming, the secrets of preparing your yacht for the season, adjusting the sales and tackling, as well as friendly gatherings by a campfire, live music at the tavern Keja and – the most important – sailing trainings under the watchful eye of experienced trainers and judges, as well as a race around the lakes Mamry and Święcajty. The meetings will be held by sailors, judges and shipyard employees known from previous Northman-Cup events.
The event will be an opportunity not only to exchange experiences between sailors, but also to try out different Maxus, Nexus and Northman 1200 units.
During the event the yachts of Ahoj Czarter can be rented at very affordable prices.
Place and time: 24-26/05/2019, Węgorzewo (ZHP Port and the Keja Tavern).
Formula: regatta training and race on the lakes Mamry and Święcajty, lectures and informal meetings, concerts in the tavern and campfire on Friday and Saturday evening.
Fleet: yachts provided by Ahoj Czarter and the owners of sailing yachts from Maxus with their units.
Costs: entry fee – 60 PLN/person
The price of the entry fee includes a t-shirt with Maxus logo and an ID allowing for participation in the event. The entry fee does not cover catering, but the organiser of the concerts – Keja Port – has granted a special 15% discount for all the items from the menu of the Keja Tavern (food and beverages) for all the participants of the “Maxus Challenge”.
Maxus Challenge – General information:
