2011 LDYC Round the Island Race

Vaaldam Accommodation available at Vaalnest Boutique Hotel. If you are visiting the Vaaldam for the LDYC Round the Island Race, look no further then Vaalnest .

Lake Deneys Yacht Club (LDYC) plays host to quite a number of yacht races throughout the year.  However, the annual LDYC Round the Island Race is undoubtedly the largest and most popular yacht race they host on the Vaal Dam.  One can even make the statement that the LDYC Round the Island Race is what popularized LDYC.  Because the LDYC Round the Island Race is so unique in its route, both the race and the yacht club became quite famous. 

Due to the fact that the LDYC Round the Island Race takes place over the course of a few days, the participants and supporters are both in need of suitable accommodation.  Vaalnest Boutique Hotel is situated near the LDYC, which means traveling to and from the racing point is facilitated.  The staff at Vaalnest Boutique Hotel will ensure that your stay is everything you can hope for; they know that taking a rest from the days yachting in the sun and spending time with loved ones is important to you. 

Established in 1958, the LDYC Round the Island Race is the largest inland yacht race in the world.  Participants come from all over the globe to compete in this famous yacht race.  The 2011 LDYC Round the Island Race was held from Friday 4 February through to Sunday 6 February.  Around 1,800 participants and 3,300 visitors assembled on the club grounds of LDYC to be part of the fun and festivities.           

Something else that makes the LDYC Round the Island Race one of a kind is the fact that it is truly a family gathering.  Apart from the main race, the family, children and friends of the participants have just as much fun.  The organizers of the LDYC Round the Island Race ensure that there are enough activities to keep everyone busy.  A central braai area, fenced swimming pool, TV area, volleyball, and ping-pong equipment are freely available.  However, best of all is the junior sailing club, where professionals are at hand to teach children the finer things of sailing.     

No matter in what capacity you attend the LDYC Round the Island Race, you are sure to fully enjoy yourself and have a fun time.  While there, you can experience what Vaalnest Boutique Hotel has to offer you.
