Delta Lloyd Regatta 2011
Medemblik, The Netherlands

The Organizing Committee of the Delta Lloyd Regatta in Medemblik has announced that the 2011 edition will be sailed over six days.
The decision comes in response to the request by ISAF to standardise the ISAF Sailing World Cup regattas. Delta Lloyd Regatta is currently the fifth regatta in the series and in 2011 will take place from 24 to 29 May.

Traditionally staged over 5 days the 2011 edition will start on Tuesday instead of Wednesday. The organizing committee also made the decision to open the 2.4mR event to all sailors and not restrict the fleet to disabled athletes. IFDS World Champion Thierry Schmitter (NED) welcomed the news saying: "this is an important step for the integration of Olympic and Paralympic sailing."

Since the launch of the ISAF Sailing World Cup in 2008, ISAF has worked closely with all the regatta organizers to standardise the regattas as much as possible. The same number of competing days is one of the areas where standardisation has been achieved. Work has also focussed on the Notice of Race, Sailing Instructions and Race Management.

The advantage of sailing on the Ijsselmeer is the almost guaranteed presence of wind. Over the last 26 years we have only had 4 non-sailing days due to lack of wind or storms. 'For us it is not really necessary to add an extra day, but we feel the need to standardize with all World Cup events. On the other hand, we do see a problem for all our 300 volunteers, as they have to take an extra day off, but they will appreciate the decrease in number of races per day", says Arjen Rahusen, chair of the Organizing Committee.

The 2011 Delta Lloyd Regatta will be held from 24 - 29 May in Medemblik, Netherlands.
