Holland - Sail Amsterdam 2010 - August 19-23, 2010
Better in original view!

These are very busy days for the pilot ships guiding all the big vessels through the North Sea Channel from IJmuiden, where the locks are, to the Amsterdam port, with a stop in between at Old/Oud Velsen for the tall ships that arrived before August 19, 2010.
