An image of the Canal taken from sky during SAIL Amsterdam

Unknown  |  at  4:10 AM  |   | 

This picture shows an aerial view of SAIL Amsterdam. The ships sailing together cover up the entire canal and seem, seem almost like small head from above and appear to be creating a traffic jam on the sea. But for those who experience the event, the feeling is quite the opposite of being struck in a traffic jam. Hundreds of ships come together to celebrate this event which stepped into its 9th year in 2015, having started in 1975. This year itself, almost 2.3 million people beared witness as Amsterdam celebrated the best nautical festival the world has ever seen.
