On August 19th we welcomed the tall ships and historic Dutch vessels as one of the largest public event in The Netherlands took place: SAIL Amsterdam !!!
Since its first edition in 1975, SAIL Amsterdam has grown to become the largest public event in the Netherlands and the largest free nautical event in the world. Every five years, in excess of 600 ships navigate along the North Sea Canal before mooring in and around the IJhaven in Amsterdam. The ninth edition of SAIL Amsterdam started on 19 August 2015. The city of Amsterdam and the municipalities surrounding the North Sea Canal formed the spectacular backdrop of SAIL, presenting a grand celebration of unity.
