20 until 25th of June 2023 - Nieuwpoort


Flying boats?

We welcome The Green Wave to the Captains again and this year you will see them sailing, or rather flying, through the channel of Nieuwpoort. With their electric boats they float above the water. A spectacular sight that you can experience for yourself. Are you interested in sailing with one of these boats? Then book a slot at office@thegreenwave.be or come visit them at their booth on the grounds.

Take a look at the website www.thegreenwave.be and be amazed


Dada Chapel

Dada Chapel is a distillery housed in a beautiful historical building in Ghent’s old city center.

Their modern distillery allows them to distill a wide variety of different spirits. In doing so, they always try to work with local and/or organic raw materials. The chapel is the place where the spirits patiently mature.

Inspired by Dadaism they want to push boundaries in the tradition-driven world of Spirits.

What is Dada? “Everything is Dada, nothing is Dada!” No rules, no restrictions. Dada Chapel is a creative free haven, where thinking differently is a way of life, critical experimentation is a must and they uphold our creed: “In Odd We Trust”

First Zero Emission Edition

We look back on the first Zero Emission edition of the Captains with great pleasure.

We are grateful to the many companies that were present. The weather was once again kind to us, allowing us to experience a few beautiful days at sea. A successful edition, no one will deny that. Corona pushed back the date a little, but we will be back next year in June.

Are you also looking forward to sailing with us again? Then make sure to mark June 23 to 26 in your agenda!
