Nautical Festival

Voor Nederlands klik hier

The Medemblik Regatta is held in Medemblik since 1985. The city of Medemblik wanted to connect more with the sailing regatta, in 2010 they added Medemblik Nautiek at the last race day of the Regatta. Lots of activities, music, watersports and entertainment in the marina of the city centre.

Lets get nauti!

To bring the sailing and the city of Medemblik closer together, the Nautical Festival and the Medemblik Regatta have united. Children can learn to sail, canoe, SUP and windsurf at the marina in the city centre. But there’s a lot more going on: go power kiting on the beach near the Regatta Center, shopping at the nautical market, go swing at the live music or test your strength at the scouting.

The program per day and per location can be found below.
