There are just ten weeks left until the 30th Delta Lloyd Regatta (May 20-24). We want to inform you about the format being sailed, the committees responsible for race management, the internationally formed jury, our PRO and the 2014 facilities you may expect.

After a year of experimenting with new racing formats, the Delta Lloyd Regatta is now following the Olympic ISAF format, to be sailed in Rio 2016. The 2014 Regatta will consist of opening series and a Medal race. The top ten finishers in the opening series will advance to the medal race, provided a minimum of three races have been completed in the opening series. For Paralympic events, the Regatta will consist of a single series. Boats not assigned to the Medal race will sail a last fleet race on the last day of the Delta Lloyd Regatta. All classes will sail nine to 13 races in total.

This year the race committees that will be present at the Delta Lloyd Regatta are: KZ&NR Hollandia, KNZ&RV Muiden, RZV Rotterdam, KW Sneek, Batavia Sailing Center. Next to these, the Delta Lloyd Regatta has invited SolentXtra from the UK to run the RS:X course in 2014. With this move the Organizing Committee is determined to demonstrate its willing to provide the best race management possible. Mike Garvey will lead the team of 12 with Peter Knight as his deputy. SolentXtra Race Management was appointed to manage the RS:X course at the 2012 Olympics in Weymouth, England The SolentXtra team will be complemented by Dutch members so that they can learn from this experienced race committee.

The jury is selected by Josje Hofland who has done an excellent job putting together an experienced jury. This team of experienced judges is almost completed. For instance Olympic London 2012 golden medalist winner in the Laser radial class Xu Lijia. More information about all the judges will follow on our website.

Robert Lamb has already been invited as the Principal Race Officer for the fourth consecutive year. Robert Lamb has more than 13+ years of race management experience covering Olympic classes, dinghies, boards, keelboats and multihulls. Robert has had several different leading functions within the ISAF and is already busy advising the Delta Lloyd Regatta.

At the International Sailing Center Medemblik there will be different on-shore facilities such as a renewed, bigger sailors home where the sailors will have the possibility to rest, follow other races, have a bite to eat and use Wi-Fi internet.

You can still register for the early entry fee if you sign up before Thursday May 1st. After this day you will qualify for the normal entry fee for the Delta Lloyd Regatta. See the full entry list here and register directly here.

Taming the beast-a conversation with Stuart Meurer of Parker Hannifin
While AC72 cats were fast, they difficult to control, so Oracle partnered with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way. If you watched videos of the AC72s racing in the 34th America’s Cup (2013), you’re familiar with the mind-boggling speeds that are possible when wingsail-powered catamarans switch from displacement sailing to foiling mode. While foiling is fast, there’s no disguising the platform’s inherent instability. Now, Oracle Team USA has teamed up with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way.
