It was a hard decision to make, but due to expected bad weather we decided to cancel the race on Saturday.

The plan is to have a sailing trip on the Lauwersmeer if the conditions improve a bit. Sailing in convoy on a more protected route may take the edge off the event for some, but for others it may just be what the doctor ordered to get more confident.
The camping offer is still on, but we skipped the catering. We will have party tents next to the catamaran club house.
And foodwise, we will have to improvise. On the other hand, there are restaurants and supermarkets near by, so we should be OK.
Sorry about having to take this step. Nevertheless, we hope to see a good many of you during the weekend.

For some competitors, the Raid Extreme is a family affair.
