NED – a class on fire…
In 2010 the official Dutch RS Feva class association was founded. At that time about 20 Feva’s raced regularly.
In 2011 the RS Feva Worlds were organized in the Netherlands, which really grew the RS Feva Class in the Netherlands. We were delighted and surprised to have 30 Dutch Feva’s enter the World championships in Brunisse. The growth of the Dutch Feva class has been amazing, which was once again confirmed by the number of Dutch Feva’s at this year’s worlds at Hayling Island. The United four regatta (2 in May and 2 in Sep) is one of Europe’s foremost Youth regatta series and we are proud to be included in the program – all International competitors welcome!
At present we have about 50 Feva’s sailing regularly both locally and internationally. We expect this growth to continue. What is also really exciting is the best Dutch optimist sailors are now interested to sail in the RS Feva’s!!!
Through a train the trainer program, which starts in the autumn this year, the Italians and British Feva sailors can be prepared for more competition during the 2013 Worlds in Italy!!!
