Our distinguished panel of judges have reflected on the vids presented in this blog over the past 12 months and has picked the top 3. It was not easy but here they are in random order. Enjoy!
This is on the Amstel River near Amsterdam during last year’s SAIL Amsterdam. Founded in 2000 to celebrate big classic sailing ships, SAIL Amsterdam is held every five years and — as you can see — has been a wild success. In last year’s event well over 100 classic sailing vessels in excess of 100 feet — schooners, barkentines, Dutch tjalks, clippers, cutters, brigs, fully-rigged ships, kits, luggers, cogs, frigates — participated. A number were more than 100 years old, and many were more than 40 years old. As you can tell, they attracted a lot of spectator boats. They love sailing in the Netherlands!
