The powerful international sailing events that the Netherlands will be organizing over the next four years provide a solid foundation for the platform where stories can be told, connections can be made and developments can have a spin-off.
From 2022, the Allianz Regatta will be sailed from Almere in the southern part of the IJsselmeer. The event will take place from 27 May to 5 June 2022. The world’s best sailors will compete in the World Cup, part of the Hempel World Cup Series, in the ten Olympic classes including the new kite sailing and windfoiling classes. The ambition is for the week of the event to grow into the Dutch Water Week, where water sports in all its pluriformity come together.

The Youth World Sailing Championships will take place from 10 to 15 July 2022. The Youth World Championship is seen as the stepping stone to the World Sailing Championship. The talents up to 19 years old compete against each other at a high level to progress from there to the top. There are hardly any Olympic medalists who have not also competed in the Youth World Championship.
