Volvo Ocean Race Festival
On 18, 19 and 20 June 2015, the boats participating in the Volvo Ocean Race will be making a pit stop in The Hague. During the three day Volvo Ocean Race Festival there will be lots of activities in and around the harbour of Scheveningen and Zuiderstrandtheater. People can, of course, admire the spectacular racing boats. And the advanced naval vessel HNLMS Groningen will also be visiting the harbour. But there is more: various shows by DJs and well-known Dutch bands, great food and lots of water sport activities. And true sailing fans can experience for themselves what life is like on board of an ocean racer, via simulators and various experiences.
Despite the fact that this is the shortest stopover in the Volvo Ocean Race, we will make sure that it will be an unforgettable pit stop for the sailors, for The Hague, and for you.
