This weekend a maritime event is taking place in Alkmaar, called as the title of this open view.
It is a show of old ships, and celebrating the start of the digging of the Noord Hollands canal (from Den Helder to Amsterdam) 200 years ago.
The old ships are mainly maintained by (proud) volunteers, all enthusiastic to tell about their babies and the hard work they put into it.


Many old ships came to Alkmaar, and there were several demo's as well.
Although it was record breaking bloody hot, I took a walk.
Here's a little impression.

Excellent, colorful (with the exception of the monochromes, of course) set, Fred! It must be a wonderful event! It's a diverse choice of lovely scenes - I find it impossible to single out favorites; they are fascinating!

TFS!

Wonderful to see these beautifully maintained craft in this historic setting. Must have been very challenging in the extreme heat, but at least it was on water.
The colour shots convey the subject vividly, but I also like your sepia versions that look like they could have been taken at the original launch.
Thanks for sharing.

I find #3 stunning! I love old ships and steam locomotives.
