Dutch Youth Regatta 2015Valentijn van Duijvendijk
The event is meant for competitive sailors who go for the Open Dutch Championship in a good en sportive atmosphere in the Optimist, Optimist Benjamin, Laser 4.7 youth, Laser Radial Under-21, RS Feva, 29’er, Cadet, Splash, Techno 293 Under-19 en RS:X youth classes. The DYR has gained a good reputation between large international Regatta’s. It is the aim of the organization to continue or even further improve its good name.
Until the very last race we have seen concentrated sailing to reach for the top ranking. The weather has been treating us very well this year with really fantastic conditions and good winds during every day. Thanks to these conditions we have been able to sail great races every day on inspiring water with the typical waves for which the Ijsselmeer is so famous.
Thanks to the input of the Class organizations, all volunteers, International Jury, Camping It Soal, beach pavilion IJsselmeerzicht, sponsors and friends, the Royal Netherlands Yachting Union and the race committees, the organization went very well.
We received a lot of compliments from the international sailors! They expressed to come back next year!
For everyone who has helped to make the Dutch Youth Regatta 2015 a great youth sailing regatta:
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!
Sailors, coaches, accompanying persons, parents, sponsors, volunteers and all others:
SEE YOU AGAIN DURING THE DUTCH YOUTH REGATTA 2016 !
