Inscriptions are now open for the Nieuwpoortweek 2015!
Topsport Vlaanderen Nieuwpoortweek
Ready for the international Sailing Week!
With only two days to go it looks like the conditions of the Nieuwpoortweek will be rather tropical. The announced 30+ degrees conditions are very unusual and will lead to thundery showers. We’ll keep a good eye on the sky.
The biggist fleet is again the Optimist Class with more than 100 younsters from 10 countries. As usual we greet the nice American team. Another classic fleet are the Cadet class with sailors from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Belgium. On the western side of Nieuwpoort we’ll find the fleets of 420, Europe and Laser 4.7.
New this year is the skiff fleet RS500 who will race only during the weekend. Later this year they’ll compete their first world championship in Bruinisse (The Netherlands).
The three yachtclubs will do their best to make it another topevent, the biggest sailing regatta in Belgium.
