Delta Lloyd Regatta - New challenges for event's 29th edition

The Delta Lloyd Regatta, second stage of the Eurosaf Champions Sailing Cup, has taken on the challenge to bring the event to a new dimension where media presentation is playing a big part.

For Event Director, Arjen Rahusen, this is the way forward ' We are concentrating our efforts to take sailing closer to the public especially through social media. All the boats will be equipped with trackers with the help of Swiss Timing. We have two video teams, who will feed daily news via the social media network and highlights. We want to give the sailors the best exposure they deserve. It is vital for them and for us!'

Racing promises to be fierce with most of the top teams engaged in all classes. Among them six 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Gold medallists will take the start on Tuesday in Medemblik.

In the 470, Matt Belcher and Will Ryan (AUS) will try to continue on their undefeated record since the start of the season. In the women division, 2012 and 2008 Gold medallists, Aleh (NZL) and Rechichi (AUS) will fight it off in a compact and talented fleet.

Another great fight is expected to take place in the Laser Radial between 2012 Gold and Silver medallists, Lijia Xu (CHN) and local star sailor Marit Bouwmeester (NED).

In the Men, expectations are high on Robert Scheidt's (BRA) return to the Lasers, however the Olympic champion will have to deal with the 'down under' sailors. Tom Burton who took the title in Hyères and placed second in Palma, or Andy Maloney (NZL).

The 49ers will showcase great spectacle with strong teams from Denmark and Great Britain in the men and women divisions.

Olympic champion, Dorian van Rijsselberge (NED) and young Dutch talent Kiran Badloe are welcoming to their home event a talented fleet of windsurfers. The Polish team, French and Israeli will provide for tough competition. Moana Delle (GER), Flavia Tartaglini (ITA) or Bianca Manchon are among the favourites in the RS:X women.

In the Finn class, Hyères's winner Andrew Mills (GBR) will fight it off with PJ Postma as well as Ivan Kljakovic Gaspic (CRO) and Piotr Kula (second and third in Garda).

The new Olympic multihull, the Nacra is continuing to attract teams and countries from around the world. The Australian are now present with four boats while the earlier favourites from Holland, France or Sweden are not missing any chance to keep their lead on the fleet.

The 2.4 is represented with a large and strong fleet including British sailors Helena Lucas and Megan Pascoe (GBR), or Barend Kol (NED). Among the nine countries represented, Malaysia is participating with three sailors.

The team of Bruno Jourdren (FRA) has made a successful come back to the Sonar competition after a victory taken in Hyères. They are back in Medemblik and will face the three Sonar 2012 Paralympic medallists in a small but very strong fleet.

Sailing is scheduled from 11am on Tuesday 21st of May until Saturday 25th.

The weather for the first day of racing will be challenging going from no wind at the start of the day to strong breeze towards the end.
