Reportage Sail 2010: A Glimpse into the Old Days

Sail Amsterdam 2010; the sail-in of an impressive fleet of Tall Ships, naval ships and sailing replicas, is a huge maritime event in the Netherlands. Beside the vessels on display for the public, demonstrations and other festivities, it includes one other nice attraction. With hundreds of sailors flooding the city, Sail gives a brief glimpse of the old Amsterdam as seafaring city it used to be.

Sailors, booze and girls; i love this city!
