Dear Yngling sailors,
In six months we will be seeing each other in the Netherlands for a lot of exiting races and good parties.
The World Championship 2017 will be held around Sneek, a lovely old town in Friesland, in the northern part of the Netherlands. We will be racing from the Starting Island at the Sneekermeer lake. You can find more information about the event on the Worlds 2017 website.
The event takes place from 14 - 22 July 2017.
See the event website for the exact dates.
To help you plan your visit to the Netherlands, we've made an overview of available accommodations around the Starting Island. Ideal is to stay at or close to the island, but you can also find a proper hotel or apartment in the town of Sneek.
During summer holidays, Friesland and especially Sneek are very popular places among tourists, so please don't wait too long to make your reservation! See the attachment for details.
The Foundation Nationaal Jeugdzeilplan has charterboats available for teams from abroad and especially from overseas.
All these boats are recently refitted by Hein Ruyten and equiped with high bottom floors. Discounts on the charter prices apply for youth teams.
Do you prefer to rent rather than bring your own boat? These are the options:
Standard boat: up to date, ready to race and in perfect condition Yngling for EUR 1.000,- or EUR 500,- for a youth team.
Mader (if available): up to date, ready to race and in perfect condition Yngling for EUR 1.500,-.
The boats are fully complete but do not include sails, you'll have to bring your own.
For more information and availability of charterboats, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
When the charterboats of the Foundation are all rented out, Hein Ruyten has also boats available.
Save the dates and we hope to see you all at the measurement in Sneek on the 14th of July.
It will be Dutch, it will be spectacular and it will be a lot of fun!
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send an e-mail to email@example.com
