Let’s Turn the Tide
You may have wondered where we have been, but not to worry the North Sea Regatta is back again for the 2019 edition. Also this year the event will be hosted by Stichting North Sea Regatta and Jachtclub Schevening and our team is very busy planning some amazing race courses and super fun parties on shore!
We (and other organizing authorities) have noticed a trend that competitors are signing up later and later for events, which makes it difficult to plan and make arrangements for sufficient equipment, staff, food and all the things involved to have an amazing regatta, and don’t we all like to have a good time? You can help us by spreading the word and signing up early, for our and other events. It will make your OA very happy.
