Invitation to the Dutch National Championships – June 13th and 14th

On the behalf of NEDWA, I would like to invite you for the Dutch National Championships  which will be held during the Braassem Summer Regatta. The annual regatta is known for its friendly and competitive atmosphere, and this year, it’s been decided to be held on the 13th and 14th of June. Every year a special theme is chosen which inspires the live music and activities. The ESA/Estec-sailing club is to be found at the big lake which lies between Amsterdam and The Hague and it’s also very close to the old city, Leiden. Every year, ESA/Estec sailors are joining the NEDWA boats, and also this year we would be happy to welcome their fleet.

The regatta consists of 10 classes beside the Wayfarer class. The race committee has proved to be very professional throughout the past years in addition to the clubhouse and volunteers who guarantee a sportive weekend.

During the weekend, on Friday the participants will be welcomed with drinks and a collective dinner at evening in the clubhouse. On Saturday, three races are scheduled having the first gun at 11am. In between the races, a complete lunch is offered at the yacht club. On Sunday, we’ll have race number 4 starting at 10am, which would be followed by lunch, then off with our final two races. During the afternoon, it’ll be time for the prize giving to our winners.

Regarding accommodation, it can easily be found in the neighborhood, minding that tents and campervans are also allowed at the club where free toilets and showers are offered for

The entry fee is 32.50 euro and it includes lunch on both days and it can be paid in cash at the beginning of the regatta. You can find the yaught club at googlemaps if you search for ‘wv braassemermeer’. A map of the location is added below this invitation.

This weekend is a great opportunity to visit Holland and be part of an immense event along with our Dutch NEDWA members and the ESA/Estec fleet. After participating at this event, you can easily extend your trip with a visit to Amsterdam, The Hague or Leiden.
