Masters 2020 Abgesagt!

Dear Finn friends,

As President of the FWM2020 Committee I am really sorry to announce that due to the situation with the coronavirus we have had to cancel the 2020 Finn World Masters in Holland.

Our Prime Minister explained in a speech on Monday that the coronavirus situation for Holland will stay critical for the coming months.

Together with the uncertain situation in the rest of Europe, but also outside Europe for our Finn friends in AUS, BRA, NZL, RSA and USA, we hope that taking the decision to cancel now will reduce to a minimum the costs for those Finn sailers already entered.

Those sailors who have already entered and paid will receive their entry fee back minus a small reduction for costs that have already been made plus the yearly fee paid to the International Masters Committee.

Those Finn sailors who did not pay their entry fee yet for our FWM2020, will receive an invoice for an administration fee, according to rules of the Master Worlds.

Our treasurer will give an overview on this, together with the repayment. If there are any questions left please do not hesitate to contact us on

As a committee we had a great year and a half together in planning this event with each other. I wish to thank “my guys” for joining: Jan van der Horst / treasurer, Hans Zuurendonk / secretary, Ewout Meier / FWM2020 site, Henk de Jager, Jelte Baerends, Wietze Zetzema, Tobias Kirschbaum, Jacqueline Zuurendonk, Trees Zetzema and Chris Frijdal for their ideas and critics.

My special thanks to Robert Deaves and Andy Denison for the support they gave to our event and give to the Masters community.

Last but not least we want to send a big thank you to the management of Marina Port Zélande, Peter de Regt and Co Schot for the enormous hospitality that was offered for our FWM2020

Finn friends, sail safe, stay healthy!

Best regards,
See you on the water,
Jan Zetzema
President Committee FWM2020

Kommentrar von Rolf Elsässer:

die Online Stornierung bei Center Parks funktioniert bei mir nicht. An die holl. Telefonnummer geht keiner ran. Gut funktioniert hat es über die Dt. Rufnummer 0221 97 3030 400. Die Stornierungsgebühr beträgt 20%.

Angeblich ist das nicht zeitkritisch, die Stornierung ist bis 30 Tage vor Beginn des Aufenthalts möglich. Ich würde es nicht darauf ankommen lassen….


Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Rolf Elsässer

Ergänzung von Rolf: Inzwischen habe ich von Center Parks schriftlich bekommen, dass sie 30% Stornierungsgebühr nehmen. Das entspricht der Anzahlung.
