SAIL-In Parade

Feel the power of SAIL

On Wednesday the 12th of August, dozens of impressive Tall Ships sail to Amsterdam during SAIL-In. Sailors defy the wind high in the masts. Hundreds of thousands of fans enthusiastically stand along the shores. The Tall Ships, sailing ships, sloops and motor boats form a bustling and swirling parade from IJmuiden to the Oranjehaven (IJ-haven).

Sail along on one of the official SAIL ships and become part of this spectacular SAIL-In Parade. On board, you have a great view of the impressive Tall Ships. Of course, all this while enjoying some food and drinks!
