The year 2020 should have been an amazing year. A year where the mighty eights would return to the Netherlands after 25 years. But the global pandemic changed that. Even a rematch in 2021 was to soon. who knows, maybe the royal eights will return to the Netherlands in the near future. Hopefully the Netherlands will have a racing fleet by then. At this moment only Falcon is racing internationally and Varg III is racing out of Enkhuizen Nationally. There are more eights in the Netherlands but they are still in the process of restauration. or kept warm in a shed. to name some Conewago, Ranja & Hollandia 1 to name a few.
