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.
