Lake Braassemermeer in the Netherlands is full with the most talented Optimist Sailors from all over the world. The 31st Magic Marine Easter Regatta is about to start!
More than 240 sailors from fifteen different countries come together for the event that is thought of as the opening event of the calendar. 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.
The Magic Marine Easter Regatta began more than 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 and ice but sun and bathing suits has also been known to happen.
Magic Marine is a proud sponsor for many years and uses the event as a showcase for the launch of the new collection. For more information you can visit the website: www.easter-regatta.nl
