Sail Event Partners
In April 2014, SAIL Event Partners was founded to organise all SAIL events and to guarantee the continuity of the event. It is a collaboration between the SAIL Amsterdam Foundation, ACE Concepts & Events and the Port of Amsterdam.
To this very day, SAIL remains a magnificent spectacle of both ships and their crews, with a wide range of festivities ashore. To make sure that every edition is for everyone, we will tend to optimise the sustainability, safety, programming and the organisation. The input from our Family, Friends, Fans and Fellows is indispensable when it comes to the subject above.
SAIL Amsterdam Foundation
As a part of SAIL Event Partners, the SAIL Amsterdam Foundation is responsible for the core-business of SAIL: the presence of international Tall Ships and the sailing legacy and its support. The Foundation is also involved with youth and sailing, seafaring aboard vessels through internships and organising small nautical events. The SAIL Amsterdam Foundation is working on their ambitions to guarantee more continuity and an international future. This all happens under the command of Mitra van Raalten.
Port of Amsterdam
Within SAIL Event Partners, Port of Amsterdam is responsible when it comes to nautical safety and organisation. The Harbour Master’s Division of Port of Amsterdam regulates, supervises and facilitates shipping at SAIL Amsterdam. Together with the KLPD and the Inland Waterways Service Amsterdam, the Port of Amsterdam is responsible for safety on the water in the SAIL area and for the proper flow of shipping traffic on the IJ and the North Sea Canal. SAIL also offers Port of Amsterdam the opportunity to draw attention to the port’s importance for the region and its nautical responsibilities.
ACE Concepts & Events
ACE Concepts & Events co-designed the SAIL Amsterdam 2015 concept with the SAIL Amsterdam Foundation. In addition to the important role that ACE Concepts & Events plays within SAIL Event Partners, the company specializes in the creation of concepts in the fields of media, theatre, entertainment and education.
