    The organizing club

    Sundby Sejlforening (SSF) is a private harbour, built and owned by its members, at the North-East coast of the island Amager, 3,5 km South-East of the center of Copenhagen.
    The yacht club was founded in 1923 and today it has around thousand members and 350 motor and sail boats.

    Getting around

    The fastest and most convenient way of getting around is the Metro. The station closest to the SSF harbour is ‘Øresund’, a pleasant 10 minutes’ walk from your boat. Trains run very frequently and a 7 minutes’ ride brings you to Kongens Nytorv in the very center of Copenhagen, where you find the famous shopping street ‘Strøget’, the Royal Theatre, Nyhavn, and a lot of fancy bars and restaurants.
    Riding the Metro in the opposite direction from Øresund will take you to Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes.
