NSR 2020 News Update

Dear North Sea Regatta Friends,

To stop COVID everyone has to participate. That is why countries imposed strict measures to combat the crisis. The Dutch government directed more extensive and prolonged measures to try and control the virus from spreading even further. These new rules and regulations took immediate effect as of 23 March.





One of the new measures is to limit gatherings of people up to June 1st, 2020. This affects everyone and all events will have to be cancelled, postponed or be executed virtually. Unfortunately, these new measures also mean that the Vuurschepen Race and the North Sea Regatta 2020 cannot take place as planned. We are very sorry, but there is no other choice as to postpone until next year.

For those who have already registered and paid the entry fee, we will contact you individually for reimbursements.

Given the current developing situation in The Netherlands and England, in combination with a very full sailing calendar for the remainder of the year, the organizing committee has decided together in close cooperation with Jachtclub Scheveningen, sponsors and the Noordzee Club that we will focus all our efforts on 2021.

We will work very hard to bring the Vuurschepen Race and the North Sea Regatta back to the water bigger and better in 2021.
