A significant number of Feadship Heritage Fleet members took part on Wednesday 19 August in one of the largest maritime events ever held in the Netherlands.
They formed part of an enormous flotilla of vessels in the traditional Sail-In parade, which marks the start of the five-yearly SAIL Amsterdam event. Hundreds of thousands of spectators lined the banks of the IJ River as the weather cleared up just in time to make for a spectacular show.
As you can see in the photo gallery, the various classic Feadships looked fabulous alongside the Tall Ships, navy vessels and boats of all shapes and sizes that took part.
They have since moored in the special Feadship Heritage Fleet harbour at the Green Ocean Marina in Amsterdam Noord, where they will be admired over the next four days by onlookers and be involved in various activities on the water, including a special sponsor day tomorrow.
We hope you enjoy perusing the images and we look forward to seeing you at a future gathering of the Feadship fleet either in the Netherlands or further afield.
