The International Finn Masters Committee is delighted to announce that the 2021 Finn World Masters will be held in Medemblik, The Netherlands.

Following the cancellation of the 2020 Finn World Masters at Port Zelande, and then the postponement of the 2021 Finn World Masters in Puntala, the Dutch Finn class immediately began to work on finding a venue for 2021 to complete their commitment to host the Finn World Masters.

It will happen 13 years after the last time the Finn World Masters was held in Medemblik. In 2008, many Finn Masters will remember a week of amazing tropical weather, great racing and wonderful hospitality.

The dates will be the traditional Masters week of 21-28 May. Planning is already under way and more details will be published as soon as they become available.

President of the Finn Masters, Andy Denison, said: "We are very happy that Finn Club Holland has stepped up and made this great offer in these uncertain times. We know we can rely on their enthusiasm and the experience of the Royal Yacht Club Hollandia to put on another great event for us. We have to wait longer to visit Puntala again, but I also know that will be well worth the wait."

"We look forward to working with Finn Club Holland and Royal Yacht Club Hollandia over the coming year to plan what will now be our 50th Finn World Masters."

The 2020 Finn World Masters was supposed to be the 50th Anniversary event, but all the celebrations have now been put back to 2021.

"I am sure that Medemblik 2021 will be a great party and hope as many Finn Masters as possible from all over the world will be able to take part."

Chris Frijdal, President of Finn Club Holland, writes: "Dear Finn friends, of course we are very sorry that we cannot go to Puntala in 2021 as many Dutch Finn sailors have really good memories of the Masters in 2011. But we understand the extreme difficulties our Italian friends are facing, so we are happy to be able to take over from them."

"We hope to welcome you, Finn Masters from all over the world, in Medemblik in 2021. Many of you will remember Medemblik as a great place to sail with often very nice conditions. Apart from the Finn World Masters in 2008, two Gold Cups and three European Championships were sailed in Medemblik. And of course many of you competed in the yearly SPA-Delta Lloyd-Breitling-Medemblik regatta. So many of you will feel at home in one of the best European sailing areas."

"The very experienced Royal Yacht Club Hollandia will be our host again. So if the weather is like it was in 2008 and if the COVID-19 disaster is behind us we will have a fantastic FWM2021."

"Hope to see many of you next year in good health."
