Looks like many of the German sailors have also found their way to our regatta. And with Sneekweek winner Peter van der Schaaf on the entry list, there's the man to look out for winning the best Dutchman prize. With a fleet of over allmost fourty OK dinghies, we really have a race on. Let's hope for wind and sun !

We will send al registered sailors specific information about the regatta on friday the 17th of August so everyone will know where to look for, where to go, who to contact, etc. In case you have problems with the registration on the website (sometimes that happens) please send an email to the event organisation, or give us a call and we will make the registration for you. Other questions are also welcome of course.



TWENTY-SIX ENTRIES AND COUNTING

08.08.2018 | Dellas family from Germany makes twenty-six entries already !!

Dellas family makes twenty-six. Marek Bernat from Poland has let us know that he will be there. With Bart ter Haar, Gunnar Goronzi, Andreas Pich and Frederik Roentgen also entering the regatta, it looks like there will be intense racing between the Dutch and German sailors. Philippe Cowez is the only Belgian entry until now, but we hope for a few more. And of course we are aiming for French, Brittish, Danish and more Polish sailors as well. We are pleased the number of entries is growing. There's even interest from the Ukraine to come over and sail in a charter OK. We are looking for fourty to fifty boats like last edition to get a perfect nationals fleet on the water, but there still is time and most sailors enter in te last few weeks prior to the start. World ranking points and a real national title up for grabs !



Stephan Veldman and the Dutch title

15.07.2018 | fastest Dutchman of the worlds 2018 on the entry list

Today Stephan Veldman, fastest Dutchman in the world championship 2018 in Warnemunde has entered the Dutch nationals / Eastersee Regatta entry list. We are very happy he will be there this year to try and win the prize for the best Dutchman or perhaps even the national title. Won't be easy with all the competition, but for sure Stephan is the man to watch out for. Winning the title is high on his wishlist !

Dutch Championship, Capital of Culture and the twothousandeighteen edition

03.01.2018 | special five years anniversary edition in the making

Just january and the organisation of the Eastersee Regatta is already preparing for this years international OK-dinghy regatta on the large lake Tjeukemeer in the northern region of the Netherlands called Fryslan. The Dutch OK class association has asked us to organise the 2018 Dutch National Championship. That means the fifth edition of the Eastersee regatta will be the National Championship just like last year and there are again world ranking points to earn. After the succes of previous editions with up to 48 OK-dinghies, we are looking for an even larger fleet from more countries competing for the title in this years fifth edition of the Eastersee Regatta. The racing will again be organised by the 'WSV Zevenwolden'. This local sailing authority is famous for it's skutsjesilen and small boat races and did a marvelous job last years.

This year is more special because in 2018 Fryslan and the capitol of Leeuwarden are European Capital of Culture. Our era is changing. The world has grown and society is more diverse. It takes a great deal of courage, creativity and imagination to deal with those changes. Leeuwarden-Friesland 2018 tackles its Capital of Culture year by sticking its head above the parapet. By bringing about change in the province, country and Europe in order to go from a community to an open community. By seeing the chances that appear and listening to new insights. By being flexible and adjusting without losing yourself. So this year, more than ever, we would like to host the regatta for the open community of OK sailors in Europe.
