Non sailing activities
The village of Noordwijk is ideally positioned between Amsterdam and The Hague, both to be reached in about 30 minutes. Both cities offer a wide range of musea, shops and bars/restaurants. But even closer are Leiden and Haarlem, both smaller in size but with a vibrant city center where remainders of middle age architecture blend with modern age facilities. They also offer well-known musea worth a visit.
And also Noordwijk offers an international museum, or more to say an ‘experience’: Space Expo is based next to ESA ESTEC, the European Space Agency’s research center. At Space Expo you can experience the history and future of space odysseys. The museum Oud Noordwijk shows you the local life and customs from the early 20th century while museum Veldzicht is dedicated to the growth of herbs in earlier centuries.
So much for the easy-going visitor 😉 The organizing committee is planning for vibrant activities on the beach as well. We think of setting up hottubs on the beach, decorated with palm trees and cocktails or so. Other water activities like SUP and wave surfing for ‘youngsters’ joining our competitors. And of course we will offer a variety of food and drinks to make it worth your while. You will enjoy them not only during one of the organized parties (opening ceremonies, cut party and two pricegivings) but also on several of the other days!
Azzurro Wellness, in walking distance of the venue, offers all our competitors the possibility to work-out and relax in their center.
