Assistance rendered for concluding the agreement on Aarhus being the 2021 SailGP venue
Holst, assisted the Municipality of Aarhus in concluding the agreement on Aarhus being the venue for an event under the 2021 SailGP.
In 2021, an event under the sailing championship SailGP visited Aarhus, at which Olympic medal winners and other sailing athletes competed in F50 catamarans fast as lightning with a top speed of 100 km/hour.
The event is one of the most spectacular sailing events in the world, and it played a major part in pointing out Aarhus on the world map; hence, it was all the more crucial that all legal as-pects were in place in order to prevent any unpleasant surprises.
Partner at Holst, Jakob Schmidt assisted the Municipality of Aarhus in concluding the agreement with the American events organiser, F50 League LLC, including how to ensure a clear division of responsibilities and placing of operator liability.
During the races in August 2021, anyone interested in sailing had much to look forward to, and not only world-class sailing. They could also cheer on several Danish sailing athletes who formed part of Team Rockwool.
