SAIL 2010, Amsterdam.
oggi qui ad Amsterdam si e' aperta la manifestazione nautica SAIL 2010 - oltre 600 tra velieri, vascelli, navi scuola, barche a vela, navi militari, etc. sono arrivati ad Amsterdam attravero l'Ijkanaal, accolti da una folla enorme e, per qualche ora, anche dal bel tempo. fino al 23 agosto nell'area di attracco delle imbarcazioni si svolgeranno attivita' di tutti i tipi (intrattenimento, concerti, visite ai velieri e alle navi scuola, spettacoli vari, etc.).
SAIL 2010 si svolge ogni cinque anni - se vi trovate ad Amsterdam in questi giorni, non perdetevela, perche' e' sicuramente uno degli eventi piu' importanti dell'estate in citta'.
nella foto vedete l'equipaggio della Dewaruci (proveniente da Jakarta, Indonesia) che saluta il pubblico dagli alberi del veliero.
nel WS: la prua del veliero polacco Dar Mlodziezy e parte degli ufficiali dell'Amerigo Vespucci, anch'essi presenti (come nelle scorse edizioni) a SAIL 2010.

SAIL 2010, Amsterdam.
Around 2:30PM today the Sail-in parade (more than 600 sail ships, tall ships and boats) entered Amsterdam's harbour through the Ijkanaal to open the nautical event SAIL 2010.
people (including myself) had been waiting since this morning to welcome the parade - once again, the city of Amsterdam came en masse to the parade. SAIL 2010 takes place every five years, so every time expectations are high.
this year even the weather was acceptable - the sun shone on and off, but unlike at the Canal Parade, I didn't have to withstand the rain... only a nasty, cold wind (well, you can't have it all...).
for the coming four days the SAIL 2010 area (between the Passengers Terminal and KNSM Ijland, for those who know Amsterdam a bit) will host many events - from various entertainment to guided tours of the haven, from visit to the tall ships to music and concerts, and last but not least: fireworks at the end of the day. if you're in Amsterdam this weekend, do not miss SAIL 2010 - it's certainly one of the highlights of this summer.
in the photo you see the crew of the Indonesian sail ship Dewaruci saluting the public from the masts.
in the workshop, the nose of the Polish tall ship Dar Mlodziezy and the officers of the Italian tall ship Amerigo Verspucci.
