Race of the Classics April 2009




This year the sails will be hoisted for the twentyfirst Race of the Classics (ROTC). This is a sailing race that is not only exciting for participants and sponsors, but also for the organising committee whose members are exclusively students. The Race of the Classics 2009 will start again in accordance with tradition by firing of a starting canon. The start will be on the 13th of April. In the first leg the vessels will sail to the port of Oostende. The next day, the ships will begin the long crossing to Ramsgate.The next day course is directed towards IJmuiden where the fleet will arrive on Saturday. The vessels will sail into the finishing port of Amsterdam to finally arrive at the ‘Sumatrakade’

Op Eerste Paasdag ligt de Veerhaven te Rotterdam vol met klassieke zeezeilschepen. In totaal gaat het om 20 loggers, brikken, barkentijnen en andere traditioneel getuigde zeilschepen. Tussen 11u00 en 17u00 leggen zij hun loopplank uit om het publiek op de schepen te verwelkomen. Ook op de wal zijn allerlei leuke activiteiten voor jong & oud: er is een markt, verschillende eet- en drinkgelegenheden en live muziek.
