Welcome to Act 2 of the EFG MothEuroCup! This weekend we are running our regatta in conjunction with the annual Delta Lloyd Regatta. This Olympic class sailing event has been taking place here in Medemblik for almost 30 years. This regatta is apart of the EuroSaf Champion Sailing Cup, sailors from around the world come to compete to improve their game against the best. All of the Olympic Classes are represented at this event. The International Moth Class was invited to this regatta for the first time this year. The sailing center is very impressive and truly motivates you to go sailing.

We are very excited to have 8 countries represented here in Medemblik for Act 2 of the EFG MothEuroCup. Chris Rashley GBR and Ben Paton GBR are here with us who were both top ranking sailors from the Worlds in Hawaii. Chris Rast SUI, Giovanni Galeotti BEL, and Beniot Marie FRA are returning sailors from the Act 1. Wibke Wriggers GER is representing the women this weekend, she is a veteran Olympic 470 sailor. We also have many other sailors that come from different parts of the sailing world including Stefeno Rizzi ITA and Andriano Petrino SUI. This morning the wind is perfect and the sailors are getting ready for racing. The first warning signal will be at 3 pm this afternoon, after the kiters complete their morning racing. We will keep you updated with the progress!
