As of 2009, the Round Texel Race is to be continued as Zwitserleven Sailing Week.  This high-performance event unites spectacular activities that raise the adrenalin.  For decades the main focus was on the Round Texel Race itself, whereas the new program becomes more extensive, challenging and longer.  Not only for the competitive and recreational sailors, but also for the spectators.  The first considerable addition is the 2009 Slalom World Championship that will attract the world’s best windsurfers.

The organisers have now announced a prize fund of (minimum) 10,000 euro for these championships.
