This project required Deltares to demonstrate our ‘flexibility’ to the maximum degree, in support of competitive sailing team AkzoNobel. We combined several tools and provided near 24h support for more than 1 year to provide the best input the team needed to make strategic and tactical decisions, under pressure and under the spotlight.  Furthermore, the forecasts were also provided to other partners in the cooperation project (like Van Oord, Rijkswaterstaat and the Province of South Holland) to discuss the usability and reliability of the predictions for their own specific needs.
