During SAIL Amsterdam 2015, Amsterdam was the centre of the nautical world. Nearly 2.3 million people enjoyed the event to the fullest: the Tall Ships, the heritage ships, all the cultural events and the entertainment, the innovative ‘Oceans’ structure, the National SAIL debate and the relaxed atmosphere. SAIL’s event centre got quite a bit bigger and more relevant in this edition. Thanks to the visitors, the volunteers, the sponsors and the huge effort and dedication of so many people, SAIL Amsterdam 2015 has exceeded all expectations.
The stunning Tall Ships have been and always will be at the heart of SAIL Amsterdam. But the addition of new elements has made SAIL Amsterdam more relevant and meaningful, and so SAIL Amsterdam 2015 offered not only a window to the past, but also a look into the future. The seemingly infinite amount of stories, the inspiring, illustrative examples of historic ships and the amazing visual experience that saw everyone’s imagination run wild literally brought the SAIL Amsterdam 2015 motto to life. All of the Netherlands could enjoy SAIL Amsterdam for a full five days. And hundreds of young people have had an unforgettable work experience.
