The second half of April in Tel Aviv is dedicated to the beach. That's when myriad events, from kayak and surf contests to a volleyball tournament, take over several of the beaches along the Mediterranean city's coastline. But it is the final event, the namesake of this 10-day festival called SAIL Tel Aviv-Yafo, that is its highlight.

That's when all manner of watercraft take to the sea in a parade from the city's northern port to that of Jaffa, in the south. Children and adults come to observe the spectacle, and of course, a photographer or two including Niki Deganit Artman, who was able to capture the above photo.
