The world's

largest catamaran race

Catamaran race

'The Round Texel Race' is the catamaran race in the world. Hundreds of “cat” sailors come to Texel and sail around the island as fast as possible. It’s a stunning sight. The start and finish are at Paal 17. Good views of the race can be had from various spots. At Paal 17, near the lighthouse, from the dyke at Oosterend and at NOIZ, at Oudeschild’s harbour and at `t Horntje. And this spectacular event is even more exciting this year with the addition of the European and World Wingfoiling Championships. This world-class event is not to be missed!
