Can you catch

the wind?

Ørsted student match race

Exclusive student event

Are you ready for a challenge packed with fun, friends and full sails?

Ørsted invites you to participate in a match race where you’ll race against other students across study lines. Each boat will be sailed by a crew of five students guided by a professional sailor.

In these fast match race boats, you’re competing on a short course on open water. You and your crew go head-to-head against the other student boats, one at the time. The objective is simple – be first to cross the finish line. To succeed, you must be smart and work together to catch the wind.

Each crew will be mixed from different study lines – and as a team, you’ll learn to collaborate and communicate to outperform the other boats. All the boats are identical – it’s only your ability to work together that makes the difference!

This match race will teach you how to work closely together to deliver results – while having lots of fun. You don’t need to have any previous experience with sailing, and the event is free of charge.

 

The event scheduled for 8th October has now been cancelled as the result of the Danish government's decision to limit social gatherings to a maximum of 50 persons.


What is a match race?

In a match race, two identical boats race each other on a short course on open water. You and your team will go head-to-head against another student boat in a dual on strategy and tactics, where the objective is simple – to be the first to cross the finish line. And to do that, you must catch the wind and outwit your opponent.

We’ll mix the teams for the boats – and as a team, you’ll have to work out your roles onboard, how to collaborate and communicate to make your boat perform – and outperform the other boats. And mind you, the boats are identical – it’s your ability to work together as a team that makes the difference!

In short, a match race will teach you how to work together in a team to deliver exceptional results – while having fun.
