Welcome on the new Dutch Youth Regatta websiteValentijn van Duijvendijk
From 5- 8 may 2016 the Dutch Youth Regatta Foundation, in conjunction with the Royal Netherlands Watersport Association (RNWA) and the involved Class Associations, organizes the combined Open Dutch Championships for all participating classes.
The participating classes are: Optimist, Optimist Benjamin, Laser 4.7 Youth, Laser Radial Under-21, Cadet, Splash Blue an 29er.
There will be no differentiation in fleets between Optimist and Optimist Benjamin. We will however publish separate results and rankings for the Optimist Benjamin and there will be an Open National Championship for this age group. After two days sailing Qualifying series all Optimist will be split in fleets for the Final series.
The Notice of Race will be published on our website as soon as possible. The Sailing Instructions will be published shortly before the start of the Regatta.
Entry for all classes will be open on Monday 29 February 2016. The online entry will be closed on Sunday 24 April 2016. After that moment there is the possibility for “late entry” with additional fee.
The organization is well on its way, we have contracted four experienced race committees and there will be an International Jury. We are looking for great races in a friendly and sportive atmosphere.
The DYR will be organized, as previous DYRs, on the premises of Aqua Resort It Soal. Information about accommodation can be found on our website (button Venue).
We look forward meeting you all at the DYR 2016 at Aqua Resort It Soal in Workum The Netherlands.
