Port of Amsterdam sounds gong for SAIL Amsterdam
The Port of Amsterdam sounds the gong for the 9th edition of SAIL Amsterdam, to be held from 19-23 August. This world-class event provides a unique opportunity to marvel at dozens of Tall Ships and other historic vessels from around the world. Some 2.5 million visitors are expected to attend the world’s largest nautical spectacle.
The 2015 edition of SAIL will be bigger than ever and features a 12-kilometre parade, the Sail Music Marina with daily concerts and the traditional pieremachocheltocht through the Amsterdam canals.
“For us as Port of Amsterdam, SAIL Amsterdam is a fantastic event that combines our history and our current activities. Under the new setup considerable attention is devoted to innovation and sustainability. SAIL offers the public an opportunity to discover both the history and the current navigation as well as the Port of Amsterdam" says Dertje Meijer, CEO of Port of Amsterdam.
