Race of the Classics sails into Amsterdam

Amsterdam’s coastal location makes it an ideal spot for all manner of nautical fun and the Race of the Classics – one of the biggest amateur sailing events in Europe – is a highlight year after year.

For the twentieth time, the annual event comes to its exciting conclusion in the historic city and visitors on Amsterdam tours can expect to see all kinds of stunning examples of ocean-going craftsmanship.

The race itself begins in Rotterdam and crosses the North Sea to its mid-point in England before returning to the ‘Dam for a celebration of all who participated.

Initiated by members of the local Academy, the race began life as an attempt to foster solidarity between different groups of local young people and international students.

Nowadays that sense of fellowship persists but the event has evolved into a celebration of sailing ships and fun on the open sea that attracts large crowds of locals and visitors on Amsterdam tours alike.

The night of Sunday April 19th is when the festivities will really begin as the ships reach the city and the assembled masses get down to some serious revelry.
