Champions crowned at final day of the Dutch Youth Regatta

The international Dutch Youth Regatta concluded with a day with heavy winds: a big contrast with the previous race days where light winds characterised the event. 704 Sailors battled on the IJsselmeer in front of Workum, The Netherlands for the title of Open Dutch Champion in the Optimist, Optimist Benjamin, Cadet, Laser 4.7, Laser Radial Youth, 29er and Splash Blue classes.

Race day 3: Black-flag-day

Race day 3 at the Dutch Youth Regatta will probably be known as the Black-Flag-Day as both Optimist race courses had to do so many restarts that several times one blackboard wasn’t enough to host all of the sail numbers of those boats who where over the line: the optimist fleet had 67 black flag disqualifications.
