A tall ship is escorted by tens of smaller ships on its way to Amsterdam, where it will take part in Sail Amsterdam 2010. Replicas of a Russian frigate from 1703 and a merchant vessel sunk in 1745 will lead a fleet of some 50 tall ships into Amsterdam on Thursday for what organizers say is Europe's biggest nautical event. The tall ships -- large vessels with multiple masts and rigged sails -- will sail from the port of Ijmuiden on the Dutch west coast inland to Amsterdam via the North Sea Canal.
