Leidens Ontzet 2011 – Fierljeppen

Literally "far-leaping". Also known as Pultstock-Jumping or Ditch-Vaulting. The object is to jump across a body of water, in this case the Rapenburg, with the aid of a pole. More info here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fierljeppen

 

Celebration for the Relief of Leiden in 1574.
