An international Optimist event not to be missed begins April 3rd on Lake Braassemermeer in the Netherlands. 240 sailors coming from 17 countries are signed up and have been training throughout the week.
The Magic Marine Easter regatta began 30 years ago from a request from Scandinavian sailors. The cold and extreme conditions in the North made winter sailing not a viable option. The Netherlands is not necessarily a sure option as some years have experienced snow ice but sun and bathing suits has also been known to happen.
The event has grown status as an International Optimist event representing up to 20 nationalites and is thought of as the opening event of calendar. Many Olympics sailors began their sailing career in the Optimist class. Not only is it an international field but it is also known for its Easter activities including easter egg hunts and a well known visit from the Easter bunny.
