Netherland hosts the world’s most beautiful nautical “festival” every five years, and this year was no exception. A tremendous crowd of 2.3 million people flocked to Amsterdam to behold this spectacle and to be a part of it. This event is named as “SAIL Amsterdam” and it takes place over a number of days. What you can see in these pictures is only a fragment of it. Hundreds of ships and boats cruised through Amsterdam forming a mesmerizing spectacle. From the bird eye view, the whole even looks extraordinary and to see so many ships sailing together is truly an extraordinary spectacle.
