Sail Amsterdam: The ultimate test of your right of way skills.
Being the largest sailing event in the world, and the greatest event for the Netherlands, millions of people attend to watch from shore and water alike.
You can find strange things drifting amidst the chaos, such as naval battle reenactments, old trains affixed with mainsails, even sailing organs with trumpet accompaniments.
SAIL was birthed in 1975 to celebrate Amsterdam’s 700th anniversary. The event took off with the increase in popularity of tall ships, and has been happening every 5 years. This will be the 9th event, happening now through August 23rd.
