In 2010, the Zwitserleven Sailing Week continues last year's high performance formula. This means that the island of Texel is the centre of exhilarating water sports from Monday 14 to Saturday 19 June. Both catamaran sailors and windsurfers will jump into action.
On Monday 14 June the Zwitserleven Sailing Week starts with the Nacra International Championships and the Grand Prix Slalom for windsurfers (sanctioned by the International Funboard Class Association). The international contest among the Nacra sailors for the world's title lasts until Wednesday morning. The boards will compete for the last time during the finals on Saturday 19 June. That happens right after the gigantic catamaran fleet departs for its race around the Island of Texel.
This innovative water sports event - The Zwitserleven Sailing Week - combines several spectacular activities. By adding high performance sports such as windsurfing and kitesurf and skiff demonstration sports, the event becomes more varied and challenging for its participants, and more interesting for the public.
