About Scheveningen/The Hague
Teaming together to hold their first Tall Ships event, the city of The Hague and its subdistrict Scheveningen both have plenty to offer participants and spectators alike. The Hague is the beating heart of political life in the Netherlands with its Gothic Binnenhof (Inner Court) holding the Dutch parliament. Scheveningen, which means ‘haven’ in Dutch, is located just outside the city of The Hague and is a popular spot for water sports including sailing, kiteboarding and windsurfing.
The region has a rich cultural and artistic history and is home to Vermeer’s famous painting, “Girl with a Pearl Earring” and to the world’s largest collection of paintings by Piet Mondrian.
About the Liberty Tall Ships Regatta 2019
The Liberty Tall Ships Regatta 2019 will see the international fleet of Tall Ships race from Rouen, France, to Scheveningen and The Hague, The Netherlands. We’re delighted to have now added a feeder race that will enable the ships to go onto the start of the Tall Ships Races 2019 in Aalborg.
Coinciding with the 75th Anniversary of D-Day and the liberation of occupied territory in Northwestern Europe, the Liberty Tall Ships Regatta 2019 will echo the theme of international friendship and understanding that is central to each and every Sail Training International Tall Ships event. After racing through the English Channel the fleet will embark on a Cruise-in-Company to Scheveningen and the Hague where there will be an invigorating port programme between 20-23 June.
