The village of Noordwijk is ideally positioned between Amsterdam and The Hague, both to be reached in about 30 minutes. Both cities offer a wide range of museums , shops and bars/restaurants. But even closer are Leiden and Haarlem, both smaller in size but with a vibrant city center where remainders of middle age architecture blend with modern age facilities. They also offer well-known museum worth a visit.
So much for the easy-going visitor 😉 The organizing committee is planning for vibrant activities on the beach as well. We think of setting up hottubs on the beach, decorated with palm trees and cocktails or so. Other water activities like SUP and wave surfing for ‘youngsters’ joining our competitors. And of course we will offer a variety of food and drinks to make it worth your while. You will enjoy them not only during one of the organized parties (opening ceremonies, cut party and two prize giving’s) but also on several of the other days!
During July, as most of the year, the prevailing wind direction is SSW to W. While the beach of Noordwijk is facing WNW this makes leaving the beach quite easy. Windforce is pre-dominantly between 3 to 4 Beaufort.
Average temperature in July is 21ºCelsius, although towards August temperature rises to 25º easily. The coastal areas are favoured with regard to the hours of sunshine:
During an average summer, the temperature of the seawater will be around 20ºC mostly. The sandy shore rises quite modest, in the race area water depth will not be above 10 meters so the sun can easily warm the seawater
