Many activities will be organized during Sail op Scheveningen.

On the water

During Sail op Scheveningen, many activities will be organized on the water and on the ships. To begin with, the ships will be brought in with a large Sail-in Parade. The pilots will board the ships in the authentic way: with Gig’s (authentic rowing boats). These Gig’s will race to put their pilot on the first ship. In this way, a sporting challenge is added to this parade.

During the event, ships are open every day to view and visit. It is also possible to make a cruise on some of these traditional ships.

On the land

Many activities are organized on the quay and on the beach. For example, in cooperation with the Beach Stadium, a sports day is organized for the crew and trainees of the ships. You can’t miss the crew parade when the various crews of all ships show themselves at their finest.

Attention is also paid to the Scheveningen fishery. You can enjoy fresh fish and cooking demonstrations and there are also competitions such as net repairing, herring cleaning and shrimp peeling. Every evening is concluded with a spectacular fireworks display.
