North Sea Regatta

North Sea Regatta

The North Sea Regatta is an annual sailing event hosted by North Sea Regatta and Jachtclub Scheveningen during the Whitsun and Ascension holiday period. This event is the annual highlight for regatta sailors on tidal waters of the coast of Scheveningen The Hague. It is the ultimate sailing location where sailors of many different divisions can sharpen their skills, battle for the prizes at stake and meet each other onshore.

The Open Dutch Championships ORC 1, 2 and 3 are being held during the NSR and is a key event counting treble scoring in the annual competition of the Dutch competition for the “Verbondsbezem” title of the Dutch Watersportverbond.

Last but not least the North Sea Regatta is the best event where volunteers are able to practice and improve their race management skills on open tidal water. This practice is crucial in order to conduct fair and equal racing in the upcoming top sport events as the Youth Sailing World Championships in 2022 and the World Championships in 2023 in Scheveningen The Hague.

Unfortunately, after the press conference from last Tuesday we had to make the decision to cancel the North Sea Regatta again this year. We are disappointed that we had to make this decision after all our planning efforts for the additional program started to take shape. We hope to see you all next year!

The next step in the RORC Offshore Season Points Series leading up to the 2019 Fastnet Race is the North Sea Race. The event has attracted 79 boats for the 1100 BST start on Friday 31 May.

It was a rainy, grey cold morning in the Netherlands on May 28, 2019. As it continued to rain throughout the morning many people questioned if the sun would make an appearance as promised in the afternoon. To many surprises the sun did come out, the skies were clear and the wind did blow. We could not have asked for a better evening to send off the sailors on the Vuurschepen Race from Scheveningen (NL) to Harwich (UK).

Spring  has definitely sprung; flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, the Easter Bunny is arriving and boats are in the the water! With that said, sailing season is upon us and will kick off this weekend with the Van Uden Stellendam Regatta. Who is ready to shake off the cobwebs and get some practice in for the NSR? It is never too late to sign up!

Two Courses, 138 boats on the South Course, 120 boats on the North Course, 120 volunteers and three days of beautiful mediterranean-like sailing conditions 'made' it a brilliant North Sea Regatta for the sailors.
