Trip notes

The Ship

Many people who come on board struggle to believe the history of the hull of this classic three-master. This Special purpose sail training ship was built in 1911. In 1994 she was fully restored as a barque (three mast rigged ship) and now roams the seas of the world in the best seafaring tradition. With a professional crew of maximum 14 and a complement of 48 voyage crew members of different ages and nationalities, the ship is powered by canvas and co-operation. The crew makes sure the ship operates safely. The atmosphere on board reflects an adventurous maritime history. The traditional mahogany deckhouse, teakwood decks and floors as well as the beautiful interior with authentic early 20th century details provide a perfect ambiance for a fantastic voyage.

Food and Beverage

At sea it is very important to eat and drink well. An experienced cook and cooks mate prepare excellent meals every day. You will be surprised by the variety of dishes. The cook will often use local ingredients from the ports we visit. And if allowed a fresh caught fish will be on the menu as well!

On this ship, you have a choice between vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals. You can make your choice know on the booking form. If you are not sure if you are registered a vegetarian or wish to change your preference, please contact the office.

Drinks

During the day there are fixed coffee and tea breaks (10h00, 14h00, 16h00 and 20h00). Of course coffee and tea is available to you all the time. Meals usually are served with dairy and juice. We recommend you to bring a water bottle from home which you can use to (re)fill with water. We also have bottles available for you in our ships shop.

Extra drinks like soft drinks and beer and wine can be ordered at the bar. You will pay your bar bill at the end of the voyage (in cash).

Food allergy or vegetarian

If you are vegetarian or suffer from a food allergy please let us know on the booking form. The cooks on board are very creative and serve a broad variety of menu’s. However due to the size of the galley, the possibilities are a bit limited. Beside non-restricted meals it is also possible to request a vegetarian meal.

If you suffer from a food allergy, please let us know as soon as possible and we will deliberate with our cooks to see what the possibilities are.

Almost everything is possible however our galley has its limits: we cannot offer a menu for vegans.

Keep in mind several ingredients are used in the galley like nuts and gluten. If you allergic to this the cook will provide for separate dishes and menu’s. However on board and in the galley these ingredients are present.

No sailing experience needed

Everyone is welcome to take the helm, set sails, assist with manoeuvres, navigation, weather observations, furling the sails on the yards and much more. The permanent crew will give lectures and instruct you during the voyage in steering, navigation and line handling. This will be done in a “Dutch” style, so without yelling, blowing whistles and so on. Also, you will find no uniforms on the ship. Crossing the ocean properly with a square rigger under sail is a team effort, so we appreciate every input from the voyage crew. Sailing experience is not necessary. Instructions will be given in watch responsibilities, basic sail theory, line handling, steering and navigation.

Tour operator

Originally built in 1910, this beautifully restored Dutch tall ship has been crossing oceans and seas on a regular basis since 2000 and has a reputation of a ship that really sails.

Following the favourable winds of traditional sailing routes has brought her to all the continents sailing both the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Ocean, thus earning her nick name ‘ocean wanderer’.

Crew and guests join the ship from all over the world and all ages. As a sail training vessel, everyone on board is assigned to the watch system to help sail the ship - navigating, taking the helm and handling the sails. Sailing experience is not required just a desire to sail to new horizons and experience all aspects of a sailor’s life on board: The wind, the sea, new friends and adventure.
