SAIL 2015, 

August 22, Day 4

Saturday, everything that floats goes to Amsterdam IJ. Thousands of people in pleasureboats, museum and other old ships
Waterbirds that can not reach the other side of the canal and swimming along the long stream of ships
Inlandships that go into convoy led by the port authorities, through all that. 
And every skipper knows better, I will never understand why a small pleasureboat skipper thinks he should use the professional path on the channel, how deep do they think they are..?
