The Sneekweek has originated from the famous "Hard sailing" day. This day has been annually held in August on a Wednesday since 1814. Everybody who owned a sailing boat went to celebrate this day ever since.
The Sneekweek has been organized in 1934 for the very first time. This series of competitions (hold within 6 days) was created by merging the two game series of Sneek's two sailing clubs together. These were the Royal Sneek Sailing Association (founded 1851) and the Sneek Sailing Club (founded 1902). The first half of the series was organized by the RSS, the other half of the series by the SSC. Each had its own buoys, race committee and prices.
In 1966 the Committee established the Sneekweek, jointly organized during that week. The first Sneekweek in 1934, had a total of 177 participants. With the largest class of 16m2. Today, around 1000 yachts appeared at the start.
The Sneekweek was the binding factor between the two sailing clubs, which in 1981 led to the combination of those associations, "the Royal yacht club Sneek.
