De acordo com a wikipedia:
SAIL Amsterdam is a large maritime manifestation held every five years in Amsterdam. Tall ships from all over the world visit the city to moor in its Eastern harbour, and people can then visit the ships for four days (free of charge).
The event was organised for the first time in 1975 to celebrate the 700th anniversary of Amsterdam, under the name 'Sail Amsterdam 700'.
Sail is one of the largest maritime manifestations in the world, and the largest event of any kind in the Netherlands. Tens of tall ships and hundreds of other historical ships are involved. .
Lesser events take place during the festival, involving small sailboats, sailor choirs or re-enactments of naval battles. The Sail In or Parade of Sail on the first day attracts many other small ships, including creations like a sailing organ (with trumpet accompaniment) or a train converted to a ship. On the next to last day there is a naval pageant and on the last day the 'Sail Out'.
O programa está disponível aqui.
Um evento que só ocorre de 5 em 5 anos, com concertos, possibilidade de visitar os barcos, música e fogo de artifício, nao é de desperdicar. Adivinhem quem é que já tem lugar cativo num barco no sábado para assistir a tudo no meio da confusao?! Yours truly, pois claro!
