Tall Ships Experience
Crossing oceans and sailing thousands nautical miles over the world
Everyone is welcome to take the helm, set sails, assist with manoeuvres, navigation, weather observations, furling the sails, even on the yards and much more. Sailing instructions will be done in a “Dutch” style, so without yelling, blowing whistles and so on. The Dutch Tall Ships are sail training vessels and therefore you will be assigned to the watch system. Prior sailing experience is not necessary. Instructions will be given in watch responsibilities, basic sail theory, line handling, steering and navigation. Taking part in the watch system is a real part of the experience on board each of the Dutch Tall Ships.
I take this beautiful experience with me in my suitcase full of memories
Last night we saw the moon rise, a blood-orange colour which slowly dissolved into a bright white that embellished the midnight swells and illuminated the rigging; quite spectacular!
The first impression I had when I got on board was that of entering a movie scene
An experience of a lifetime
Home is where the anchor drops
When crossing the Equator we honor King Neptune
Broaden your horizon
Feel the wind in your hair and the salty breeze in your face
