Every five years the parade of ships – SAIL AMSTERDAM – takes place. In August, thousands of vessels, from small sailboats to large replicas of caravels, arrive at IJ Bay north of the city, and then pass through to the capital of the Netherlands. In 2015, 8,000 vessels participated, attracting millions of people to see a show that is not to be seen in any other place on earth. It is truly an amazing event.
