Medemblik will once again be the center of attention from 26th to 30th May for the Delta Lloyd Regatta. The 31st edition of this international sailing event that brings several Olympic classes together on the water, takes place with just over a year until the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. In addition to the Delta Lloyd Team, many other top sailors will be present. There will be more than 70 different nationalities competing on the Ijsselmeer.
The Delta Lloyd Regatta is of great importance to the sailing community. More than 700 boats (71 RS:X Men and 44 RS:X Women) have already been registered. As such, the 2015 edition of the Regatta is well on its way to record numbers. The Organizers expect this edition to be the largest of the last 10 years.
The Delta Lloyd Regatta, partnering with Magic Marine as the new clothing sponsor, has always been known for a high quality and strong field of contenders. “We work extremely hard to achieve this” says Chairman of the Organizing Committee, Arjen Rahusen. “The registrations continue to stream in, we expect a top field next week that will ensure an exciting Delta Lloyd Regatta takes place.”
During the Regatta all races can be followed live via social media and 3D replay. From each starting ship a live report will be delivered via Twitter. In addition general messages and reports can be found on the website and general social media channels ( Facebook / Twitter / Instagram).

The RS:X Class has sent the BYO (‘Bring Your Own’) Regulation to ISAF for approval.
As most of the sailors and coaches were waiting for some time the serial numbers of BYO equipment, they are allowed to use at the 2016 Rio Olympic games, the regulation prepared by the RS:X Class is published HERE.
There is still possibility that ISAF will make some changes especially regarding the procedures but it will not affect the equipment serial numbers stated in the regulation.
We will keep you updated.
