Location / Accommodation / Coach Boat / Schedule / Sailing Instructions / NOTICE OF RACE

70 km north from Amsterdam Schiphol airport (65 km motorway) you'll find the small town Medemblik on the IJsselmeer coast. A well known racing location for Olympic class windsurfers. Medemblik has a long history with hosting one of the ISAF World Cup events, formerly known as the Spa Regatta.

Medemblik is the smallest but oldest of the West- Frisian towns. Count Floris the Fifth granted Medemblik city rights as far back as 1289. In order to keep the rebellious West Frisians under control, he had a fortress built which stands proudly at the mouth of the harbour to this day: Radboud Castle. Medemblik received town privileges in 1289, nowadays the city counts about 7.600 inhabitants.

Due to its rich history, Medemblik is an interesting place to visit. Nowadays Medemblik is one of the most important sailingcenters of the Ijsselmeer with several yachting harbours. More information about Medemblik can be found at http://www.vvvmedemblik.nl/
