Maritime Vlissingen - Sail de Ruyter 2017Tweejaarlijks altijd het laatste weekend van augustus
Maritime Flushing (Vlissingen Maritime) is a biennial event and always takes place in the last weekend of August. It is created around a fleet of historic sailboats which after their arrival via the Westerschelde berth for a few days along the quay of the inland ports of Flushing. Plenty of ships can be seen in abundance during this event: from traditional flat bottoms to modern cutters, from classic four masters to spectacular modern marine ships. You can admire them all every day from the boulevards, and in the inner dock ports of Flushing.
Enjoy a snack and a drink on one of the many cozy terraces in the downtown Flushing area, visit the 'Dokhaven', 'Dok van Perry', the maritime market, the children's activities, the old traditional demonstrations or the (modern) business demonstrations.
