The first bricks
On Thursday afternoon, during the European Maritime Day (EMD), the go-ahead was given for Lego ships Sail 2023, in which students will build a number of ships made of Lego in the run-up to Sail Den Helder 2023. Alderman Kees Visser and Mayor Jan de Boer formally laid the first bricks.
In the coming two years, pupils from primary schools in Den Helder and the surrounding area will be able to recreate the Morgenster and the Zr.Ms. Den Helder. The director of Sail 2023, Jeroen Franken, was also present at the moment and according to Franken the event is gonna be fantastic and there will be a lot of volunteers and educational internships.
