regattacenter/racearea

The European Championship will take place at the Regatta Center Medemblik (www.regattacenter.com). The Center is part of the Marina Medemblik and specially designed to host international sailing regattas. It is located on the western shore of the Ijsselmeer and about 1km from the city centre of Medemblik (Address: Vooroever 3, 1671 Medemblik, The Netherlands). Medemblik itself is less than one hour by car away from Amsterdam and can also be reached by public transport.

The race area will be close to the habour only a short sail away. Since there are no other regattas planned we have all the space to ourself and can choose where to sail. The surrounding land is very flat with the North Sea only 30km away so there is hardly any disturbance to the wind flow. Note the shallow depth in the race area (4-5m) which causes a short and steep chop rather quick.
