Once again this year the annual sailing event “North Sea Regatta” takes place with the well-known Vuurschepenrace from Scheveningen to Harwich and the RORC North Sea Race back to Scheveningen followed by the North Sea Regatta inshore races, off the coast of Scheveningen. In order to have some air between the Vuurschepenrace and the inshore races, the Vuurschepenrace starts this year already on Tuesday 8 May 2018 at 7:00 PM. The return from Harwich starts on Friday 11 May 2018 and the first boats are expected back on Saturday 12 May 2018 (always depending on the weather and the wind as every sailor knows …).
The prize giving ceremony of this beautiful trip takes place on Sunday 13 May. After the Vuurschepenrace there is some time to catch your breath and get the ship back in order to take part in the battle scene off the coast: North Sea Regatta inshore.
This will take place at Pentecost on Friday 18 May, Saturday 19 May and Sunday 20 May 2018.
In addition to the standard courses for the ORC 1, 2 and 3, ORC Two Handed, IRC 1 and 2 and the sport boats, the catamarans will also participate this year, at the North Sea Regatta. It promises to be a great spectacle. Around the races there is also a nice program with different social events.
Keep an eye on the website of the North Sea Regatta for the latest information, the Notice of Race and the social events.
