SAIL Den Helder Is this year's biggest public event in North Holland. With the arrival of, amongst others, the international Tall Ships and the many activities in and around the harbor it is a wonderful nautical event to visit for several days.
The event took place for the first time in July 1993. It then coincided with the 36e Marine Days when National Fleet Days were called. Even now there are the Marinedays, the public can visit marine ships during Sail, watch spectacular demonstrations and of course anything to do. It's a unique opportunity to see the Royal Navy closer.
