Sneekweek: water sports and parties

The festive atmosphere of the Sneekweek is just as well known as the sailing competitions themselves. Various festive activities, including a fair and a big market, turn the Sneekweek into a great festive week. In Sneek they say for good reason, "Daytime for the honor, the evening for the atmosphere".

Festive tradition

The Sneekweek is traditionally opened by a naval review, a show with hundreds of boats and fireworks. The second final match day is on Wednesday, which is known as Hardzeildag, the highlight of the Sneekweek. On this day there is, among other things, the Friesland-Holland race in which the Frisians have to compete with the sailers of the provinces of North Holland and South Holland.
