Sailors set off in 2018 Hempel Sailing World Championships

Yesterday marked the start of one of the biggest global sailing events in the world, The Hempel Sailing World Championships. The competition will be held in Aarhus, Denmark, and will run until the 12 August 2018.

Sotic clients, World Sailing, will host the event that is the first big qualification for the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020 and will include all 10 Olympic boat classes. The event takes place on the Docklands, at the exact spot where the Vikings founded Aarhus.

Sotic have worked with World Sailing since 2007, providing them with a website which is an essential tool for members, sailors and fans from around the world to access information.

In addition to World Sailing’s main website, Sotic has also worked with the Federation to produce an Olympic specific site for the 2008, 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games.

These sites delivered comprehensive coverage of the Olympic Sailing events including live mark-by-mark roundings and results from every race, daily galleries featuring the best photography from the Games and a complete database of Olympic Sailing results.

Sotic have also been working with World Sailing on an existing, Sotic-built Sailor Registration platform, which tracks every single elite sailor in the world.
