Every year new brands of boats are launched which means new World Championships, Nationals, class events, class associations . . . . As a technical clothing company it doesn't matter necessarily what type of boat as long as the sport continues to grow and that the sailors are having fun. With events like the Schuttavaer, we can see passion and dedication and this is the exact reason why the Schuttavaer Race just celebrated its 30th year anniversary.
There are fabulous races to choose from in this World (Almost too many but we can't complain). The Schuttavaer Race is one of a kind. A triathalon with biking, running and sailing mixed together with a Le Mans start, locks, checkpoints and a whole lot of fun. The yachts sail with 5 team members one of which is a champion (or hopefully) biker and one is a runner. These guys have a tough job needing to run without a good nights sleep not to mention most of them have never sailed before!
The 2012 Edition celebrated the races 30th birthday. Unfortunately the race track was not able to be finished due to the crazy conditions in the Netherlands. 35 knots to 0 knots within seconds. All info and photos can be found at www.schuttavaerrace.nl
