TSE congratulates client Sport Event Denmark on its win to host the 2018 ISAF World Championships!
Over the weekend, the International Sailing Federation awarded Aarhus 2018 the rights to host the 2018 ISAF World Championships. As lead consultants, TSE facilitated the bid of Sport Event Denmark and the Danish Sailing Federation on various aspects, including the final presentation to the evaluation commission.
After a strong recommendation by the Commission which put forth Denmark as the preferred host, the ISAF Executive Committee unanimously endorsed the selection and named Aarhus, Denmark host of the 2018 ISAF Sailing World Championships.
Lars Lundov, CEO, Sport Event Denmark says: “We are very honoured to be awarded the ISAF Worlds 2018. Aarhus is the right place at the right time for sailing. The city and Denmark have a strong sailing and event tradition and we now look forward to making the event a big bang for sailors and sailing.”

The team has worked very hard and it is great to see all their hard work pay off.
