Location

Located on the left side of the river Scheldt, the Antwerp Lake “Galgenweel” lies very close to the City Centre and is strategically very well positioned in the middle of our small country Belgium. Therefore it is considered as the beating heart & home for the inland based Belgian (Snipe & Finn) Sailors. Sailing on the lake is always very challenging due to the shifty and gusty conditions.

Many great Belgian sailors started their career here and are always happy to return. The Racing area can be reached in about 5 minutes from the slipway and the courses are usually fairly short and guarantee some close racing. The audience ashore can easily follow the races from the clubhouses.

Partnership

The Belgian Snipes & Finn Class Belgium are happy to announce they partnered up with BE Networks.

Founded back in 2008, BE Networks is an international IT company which is striving for “Sustainable IT Sourcing”.

SUSTAINABILITY CUP

Introduction

In September 2015 the UN General Assembly formally introduced the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) with the purpose to work towards Sustainable Development by 2030. During the coming years, 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), linked to 169 targets, are to form an action plan to free human kind from poverty and return the planet to the path towards sustainability. These goals, which are integrated and indivisible, reflect the 3 dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and ecological dimension.

 

Finn Class Belgium & the Belgian Snipes highly value the “global strive for sustainability” in every aspect. With the sole and only form of propulsion being wind combined with manpower, Dinghy Sailing is a very environmental friendly sport with zero CO2-emission after all.  

"Powered by nature, serious sailing, serious fun!"

That’s how the “Antwerp Sustainability Cup” was brought alive.
