The Champions are crowned after an amazing sailing weekend in Medemblik. Listen to the reaction of some of those champs in this video. [Video in Dutch]
After three days of sailing in Medemblik we've crowned seven new Dutch Champions and eight Class Champions. A total of 302 participants appeared at the starting line this weekend. The participants faced different weather conditions in which a worthy championship could be sailed.
Two totally different classes make their introduction on the combined Dutch Championships in Medemblik. The soling, a keelboat, and the Nacra 15, a catamaran. A great addition to the event, thinks Joost Brouwer from the race comittee.
The top sailors in each class start to appear at the top of the lists on day two of the Open Dutch Sailing Championships. There is a bit more wind compared to a day earlier, the shifts force difficult decisions for the sailors.
A unique moment at the Open Dutch Sailing Championships. We've found the youngest participant, Joesephine Holtz (13) and the oldest participant, Rodrick Casander (74), and put them together. This resulted in a nice discussion between the Laser 4.7 sailor and the Finn sailor.
The first day of the Open Dutch Sailing Championships has started in nice conditions. All scheduled races have been sailed, the battle for the Dutch title is on.
The Open Dutch Sailing Championship (ODSC) is traditionally sailed in the third full weekend of September. The Regatta Center Medemblik is once again the place where the Dutch Championships are organized, this year for no less than 15 classes. New added are the Soling and the Nacra 15. With also the High Performance classes and the F18, it promises to be a spectacular event.
The Open Dutch Sailing Championships takes place from 14 to 16 September at the Sailing Center Medemblik. 15 different classes will battle for the National title. With them Florine Bramervaer from Medemblik in the 4e9erFX.
The World Champion Splash from 2017, Aaron van Dok, switched to the Laser Radial this year. He was searching for a new challenge after the Splash and found it in the Radial. At the Open Dutch Sailing Championships, he will fight for the Dutch title, although he doesn't expect to end up on the podium. For him, this year is to get used to the boat, that's very different from the Splash.
Laser sailor Niels Broekhuizen is going to sail the Open Dutch Sailing Championships in the Finn, in stead of his Laser. We talked to him about why he makes this transfer and he tells about his future.
