Windmills & Tall Sails

SAIL Amsterdam: Parade of Tall Ships

Prepare your video camera! Tall ships, plus hundreds of sailing heritage craft, modern ships, naval ships, and replicas from around the world converge on Amsterdam only once every five years for SAIL Amsterdam – and you're invited.

Windstar guests appreciate the romance of sailing vessels – and on Wind Surf during this event is the best place in the world to enjoy every type of these impressive ships.

Wind Surf, as the largest sailing yacht in the parade, is sure to be the star at this year’s event – with you collecting admiring glances on deck. SAIL Amsterdam traditionally starts with the Parade in the IJ. As you and your fellow guests gather on deck, you can sip a mimosa, mingle with the crew, and – of course – take plenty of pictures. Lunch will also be served on deck so you won't miss a single highlight.

This is why you sail Windstar – for unforgettable days like this.

Please note: This Private Event has been scheduled in a way that will allow you to book and experience another shore excursion on the same day and you will not miss anything.
