“The capital of sailing sports in the Netherlands” – one could say about Medemblik and for a reason. With its different modern yacht harbours one of which is Regatta center, Medemblik is a well-known place for national and international sailing races. One of the most spectacular moments is for instance a sail-in evening after the annual 24 hours race when hundreds of various boats enter the town harbour greeted by spectator crowds.
At many cafés around the cozy town harbours, one can enjoy the atmosphere of this old charming town, so popular with water sports enthusiasts.
