Race of the Classics

Ahoy pirates!

This year again, Team RSM is participating in the biggest student sailing competition in Europe: The Race of the Classics. On April 2nd, the Hendrika Bartelds will leave the port of Rotterdam for a sensational sailing race to England. 500 students will battle with their teams to win the Challenge Cup, the Golden Compass, the RAA and the Media Award. We will sail to several cities in the Netherlands and Belgium, where we enjoy numerous parties. After that, we will cross the North Sea and race to England to win the title! When we arrive in England, we will even have a fancy gala with all teams. On the 8th of April, we will enter the port of Amsterdam and enjoy the final PortSide party together with all teams to celebrate the end of the trip.

Two years ago, Team RSM won ‘De Rees’, and last year the Hendrika Bartelds was the best party boat of the fleet. This this year we are striving to be both. However, to realize that, we need you! The week will be filled with sailing, partying and meeting new people. There is absolutely no sailing experience required to participate.
