Margrethe, Henrik & Frederik open new yacht club house

Queen Margrethe, Prince Henrik and Crown Prince Frederik have been to the Royal Danish Yacht Club to inaugurate its new club house. The club was founded in 1866 and was given royal status by Christian IX in 1891. The Royal Yacht Club in Turborghavn has undergone a facelift in preparation for the upcoming summer sailing season in Denmark. As we know, Frederik was instrumental in winning the Farr 40 World Championship 2007 for Copenhagen and there is a busy Nordic competition schedule coming up this summer, which includes sailing in Denmark (in Skagen and Copenhagen), Sweden, Norway and Germany.
