In Pictures: Sail Amsterdam 2015

Sail Amsterdam 2015 concluded yesterday as five days of celebrating Tall Ships, sailing heritage and the history of the maritime industry came to an end on Amsterdam’s waterways. The event, which takes place once every five years, was attended by nearly 2.3 million people. The event was closely monitored by various port authorities and on-water control, ensuring the smooth flow of the thousands of vessels on the water.

Arie Jan de Waard, Chairman SAIL Amsterdam Foundation (SSA) commented, "SAIL Amsterdam 2015 was not only a memorable experience for visitors, but also for all the crew members of the ships. The collaboration between the Municipality of Amsterdam, the North Sea Municipalities, the Port of Amsterdam, all operational and security forces as well as our own organization, went very smoothly. And I thank everyone who contributed to this successful SAIL. " The next edition of Sail Amsterdam will take place in August 2020.
