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".
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. Enjoy the traditional Holland-Friesland Rainbow-class race at the end of the afternoon on Sunday. It's the Frisians against the Dutch. This is a real spectacle when the spinnakers are being hoisted!
