Sail 2020 Amsterdam

One of the biggest marine events in the world .An amazing experience, Join us on Excelsior and be part of our crew taking Excelsior on a 7 night trip from her home port to the Sail 2020 Festival in Amsterdam.

Leaving the Heritage Quay in Lowestoft you will sail across the North Sea to IJmuiden where you will join with a fleet of over 50 Tall ships  to process to Amsterdam for a once in 5 year Sailing Festival.. Whenever SAIL Amsterdam comes around, hundreds of thousands gather to wave in the ships sailing into the city, as well as to experience maritime-themed performances and concerts, and lap up the chance to climb aboard both the old and new ships. The first SAIL was in 1975. Forty years later in 2015, more than 600 ships sailed into the North Sea Canal to moor in Amsterdam’s IJhaven. With the SAIL Amsterdam Foundation always trying to better the last event, expect even more in 2020.

Be part of the crew of Excelsior for this amazing experience of a lifetime. Get a flavour of what to expect from this time lapse video of the 2015 event.
