    A Dutch Treat For Olympic Classes At Allianz Regatta

    ]


    The opening day of action of the Allianz Regatta was dominated by the Dutch on home waters as they led the way in four of the six classes in action.

    In fact it was only in the two Formula Kite classes that the home competitors were denied, with a strong French showing.





    Perhaps the standout performance for Dutch fans in the Allianz Regatta came in the iQFOiL Men, where Luuc van Opzeeland led a Dutch 1-2-3 through four heats.
