on the beach
My name is Ron van den Berg, I’m a Dutch Contender (NED 1263) dinghy sailor.
I’m a member of the Sailing Club "Zeil Vereniging Noordwijk" ZVN.
The sailing club is situated on the Northsea beach in Noordwijk aan Zee in the western part of the Netherlands.
We launch our boats directly from the beach and sail through the shorebreak.
Most boats here are multihulls, but there are also monohulls.
I’m not a regatta sailor, but my passion is to sail here, because of the element of the waves. I’ve edited my footage of season 2011 and have made the following movie. I hope you enjoy it!
