Belgium confirmed to host Women’s European Championship June 28-30 in Galgenweel, Antwerp, Belgium.
Scira Belgium is proud to announce it has been asked to organize the Snipe Women’s European Championship 2019. The event hasn’t been run for a number of years and it was therefore the plan of the people who came up with the idea to make it a low threshold event. A 3 day regatta is planned from 28 to 30 June 2019.
The venue will be lake Galgenweel in the city of Antwerp, home of the Snipe in Belgium. Although small, less than 1 km long, it sports five sailing clubs and houses several hundred boats in covered yards. It’s one of the most active sailing hubs in Belgium from its creation as part of an urbanization plan in the 1940’s.
The size of the lake is a challenge, both for organizers as for sailors. Courses are short and guarantee close racing that is easy to follow from the clubhouse. The start line is max. 5 minutes away from the bank and crews can come ashore in between races as there are plenty of jetties. Scira Belgium is also known for its socials.
We can now show you what you really will be sailing for. Marc Cornelissens, Snipe sailor, co-organiser and goldsmith designed and handmade the medals: gold in yellow gold, silver in white gold and bronze in pink gold. All are 18kt gold each set with a 0.04 ct brilliant cut diamond. Did you expect anything else from Antwerp, the City of diamonds?
