Festivities in the harbor during the Worlds

While sailors are battling for the Worlds title, family and friends enjoy themselves with all the festivities in het harbor. The surroundings, local retail, cafes and even the beach is involved to make Scheveningen the place to be for everyone during the Worlds!

HISWA Racevillage

The Race Village is at the heart of the action and in the middle of the harbor; Experience the spectacular Opening Ceremony on Saturday 14th of  July, and cheer with the winners during the Closing Ceremony on Friday 20th. Open to the public, the village is the place for visitors to wander around and for sailors to relax after sailing. With a market, food, music and a daily happy hour, it’s the perfect place to meet each other. HISWA Race  Village is open from Monday 16 July till Friday 20 July at 15.00 till 20.00 hours.

Wind, water and sport

Sport is the main factor during the Offshore Sailing Worlds. Besides the sailing out on the sea, there will be a complete sports- and activity ground during the Offshore Sailing Worlds. Try out new sports at the ‘Sports beach’ and start your day with Yoga. Or train your muscles during an introduction into Crossfit! Get out on the water, just like the sailors, and go by kayak or try out sailing yourself.

Children will enjoy themselves with the Kids program. Learning to sail in an Optimist, getting introduced to ropes and knots or making their very own boat! These are just a few examples from our Kids program.

Getting to know The Hague

After getting involved in the sporting activities and before relaxing at the HISWA Racevillage, it’s time to discover The Hague! There’s a lot to see and experience in the city of Peace and Justice. In 2018 the city by the sea is celebrating it’s 200th anniversary. With lots of activities and events you don’t want to miss! Check these events on their website.

Move like the Dutch
Being one of the greenest cities in Europe, a bike experience cannot be missed! Teams, shore crew, fans and friends can enjoy the fastest way to get around while contributing to an environmentally friendly sports event. Reserve your bike here!

Live action on the water

Visitors, family and friends have the opportunity to get out on the water to watch the live action on the water! RIB Actie Scheveningen gives the RIB Powerboat action while checking in on the sailors. Read more about this opportunity here.

The Offshore Sailing Worlds brings sailors and visitors together, making the best memories for those 1300 sailors from all around the world! Are you joining us?
