Thanks, Arche. To explain some of the boats: the organizers of the event 
pick a major theme each year. This year it was, not surprisingly, 
Rembrandt (the Netherlands has been going gaga celebrating the 400th 
anniversary of his birth). Hence the many references to painting and the 
period dress on many boats. The UN blue helmets are there every 
year--that particular group just likes that theme. The company-sponsored 
boats (I noted Xerox, IBM, Shell, ABN Amro and ING) are from the 
gay/lesbian employee associations at these companies.

The rest are whatever the groups organizing the boat felt like.
