SAIL Amsterdam, August 2010
Balaji Ramasubramaniam, Dragos Ionita, Raluca-Elena Podiuc, and I went to the SAIL Amsterdam festival on Sunday, August 22, 2010. Before that, we went to the Van Gogh Museum (which doesn't allow photos) and ran across an outdoor fashion show.
SAIL Amsterdam is a large maritime event held every five years in Amsterdam. Tall ships from all over the world visit the city to moor in its Eastern harbor, and people can then visit the ships for four days (free of charge). SAIL 2010's main attraction was the impressive fleet of Tall Ships, sailing heritage craft, modern ships, naval ships and replicas. The theme was "a nautical encounter between the past, present and future."
