The Hague has gone from pit-stop to finish line.
The Hague hosted the Volvo Ocean Race in a short but very sweet pit-stop as the boats raced from Lorient to Gothenburg in 2014-15. This time around Scheveningen is going not one, but two better – with Dutch fans not only turning out to host the big 2017-18 finish, but also support their home-town entrant, team AkzoNobel!

The Hague, international city by the sea
The Hague is the residence of the Dutch King, seat of the Dutch Government. The words peace and justice are part of the city’s official logo and there are 150 international organisations that call The Hague home, including the International Court of Justice. So it’s one of the places that hosts the United Nations, along with global cities like New York, Tokyo and Geneva. But the city is also known for some very popular beach resorts, and although the population counts half a million people, it’s fairly easy to put your towel somewhere along the seven miles of coastline.

How do I get there?




Race Village:

Houtrustweg 505, 
2583 WB The Hague
Netherlands
 

Air: Most flights go into Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport (AMS) but check also the city's own airport Rotterdam-The Hague (RTM)
Train: Den Haag Central
Bus: Bus 22 runs from the beach to the centre
Alternative: Do as the Dutch do, hop on a bike!

The Volvo Ocean Race will be in The Hague from 24-30 June 2018 and we’re looking for people to join our Volunteer Programme and help make the Stopover a huge success.

Registration for The Hague will be open from July but in the meantime, if you are looking for more information about becoming a Volunteer, please email the Volunteers Manager The Hague Stopover, Yvon Roelofs.
