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.

What started as a grey and raining North Sea Regatta morning in Scheveningen, turned into a day with champagne sailing conditions. We had to wait a little, but around noon the sun came out, the wind picked up and the chop machine was turned on! During the first race on the South Course, the wind went from 5 to 15, maybe even 20 knots, there was a lot more wind and waves then the forecast showed us, no complaints here!
