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.
