Over the course of 40 years, the open Round Texel Race has grown the world's biggest catamaran race. This year loads of cats battle the waters around Texel and each other for the honor of sailing around the island the fastest.
The last few years, Round Texel has become a widely attended public event with 10.000 spectators on the beaches and thousands more at the lighthouse De Vuurtoren and the village of Oudeschild. During a mass start all catamarans will depart at the simultaneously. The starting line, just past the surf and perfectly visible from the beach, is marked by two large shops and a helicopter with flares.
And for the second time in its history, Round Texel will be held together with WAVES Festival: a sports- and music festival devised by Texel resident and two-time Olympic world champion windsurfing Dorian van Rijsselberghe. From Thursday to Saturday, visitors enjoy loads of sports and events, good food, a couple drinks and performances by artists.
