A warm invitation to DelfSail 2009
22 - 26 August 2009
In the morning of 22nd August 2009 a magnificent scène will unfold at the Ems estuary in the Northern part of the Netherlands. An impressive fleet of Tall Ships, square riggers, traditional sailing vessels, yachts and steamships from all over the world approaches the port of Delfzijl. Sailing ships are under full sail in the wide estuary, a picture postcard of times past!
While crowds are waiting alongside the canal and at the quaside, the majority of the crews greet them with a song, while standing at the rigging. This 5th edition of DelfSail in 2009 promises a fleet, even bigger and more varied than ever before! The crewmembers know where they are going, to the friendliest port in the Netherlands with the big heart, where ships will be moored adjacent to the citycentre.
For the crews longing to see the big cities of Groningen and Amsterdam, daily busschedules are organised. Official receptions, culture and sports are high on the agenda, offering something special for all. Once being a part of this family means you will always return to the port of Delfzijl sooner or later. You are very welcome indeed!
Meet us at DelfSail 2009, Delfzijl, the Netherlands
22 - 26 August 2009.
