SAIL is a 5 year maritime event
Sail is actually sail Amsterdam and is held every 5 years, and also lasts 5 days. The first time was in 1975 because of the 700 anniversary of the city of Amsterdam. Because this event was a success, it was decided to do this more often and the organisation Stichting Sail Amsterdam (SSA) was established. Sail Amsterdam is the largest nautical event in Europe and the heart is formed by the impressive fleet of Tall ships, sailing heritage, modern ships, naval vessels and replicas. In addition, a daily changing programme takes place of all kinds of cultural and sporting activities. More information can be found on the website ofSAIL.
