Round Texel 2018 about to start

Wednesday June 13th the Round Texel program will start. Over 200 catamarans will line up at the start of the biggest cat race of the year. The first 3-days the Texel Dutch Open (TDO) is an important part of the event. The F18 class traditionally provides some nice battles between former and current champs. The TDO will be held in front op ‘Paal 17’ where also the start & finish of the Round Texel race on Saturday will be. Interested in the Notice of Race, click here.
