Project Description

Executive Committee FJ Europeans 2020

International friendship through FJ sailing

By choosing “Closer together” as the central theme for the Europeans 2020 the executive committee hopes to give substance to the original vision of Coen Gulcher when he created the Flying Junior. Coen Always emphasized that the Flying Junior was just a way to create international friendships.

Monnickendam as a venue has al the ingredients to create that atmosphere. An exclusive FJ Campsite with boatpark, car park, club and dressrooms at arms length. A cosy 665 years old city with lots of pubs and restaurants an a nice sheltered race area at only 20 minutes Sailing from the club. But most probably the real unique selling point is that the familv can watch the races from ashore zipping a nice Cappuccino or white wine at a very nice Beach club  while the not competing kids can do their swim.

The executive Committee of the FJ Europeans 2020 consists of 7 passionate FJ sailors, who will all participate in the Championship as well.
