Rotterdam (NL) – Vannes (FR)


On the day of your arrival, the captain will brief you on the safety procedures and the rules of life on board, on the planning of the trip and, of course, on the weather forecast. We will sail through the Nieuwe Maas to the North Sea. Through the Calais Passage we enter the English Channel. We will stop at the island of Alderney or at a port in Normandy. We will then sail further west. The island of Ouessant marks the end of the Channel. We enter the Bay of Biscay. The water depth increases rapidly to 5,000 metres.

We sail south along the Breton coast. Before entering the Gulf of Morbihan, we hope to anchor at Belle Île. The name (Belle Île) says it all; here we will disembark to stroll around, visit the citadel or visit one of the cafés or restaurants. Once in the Gulf of Morbihan, we face currents of up to 9 knots. An exciting last leg of a beautiful journey. We will anchor in Port Blanc, near Vannes. Disembark on May 14th after breakfast.

Level 1

Level 1 trips are suitable for anyone in good health. We sail, for example, in sheltered waters or close to the coast. In case of bad weather, we can seek shelter in a harbour or opt for a more sheltered route.

OOSTERSCHELDE wants to be accessible to the widest possible public, but you should be aware that you are making a trip on board a sailing yacht. This demands more of your physical capacity than a daily walk. One trip is more demanding than another. With the different levels we provide an indication of what kind of trip it is. If you are unsure whether a trip is suitable for you, it is important that you contact Tall Ship Experience for advice.

The three-masted schooner “Oosterschelde” was built in 1918 as a sailing cargo ship. The ship plied European waters
European waters and was frequently seen off the coasts of Morocco and the Mediterranean. In 1930, heavier and more modern diesel engines were installed and the rigging was reduced. From 1939 onwards, the ship sailed under a foreign flag and in 1950 underwent a drastic conversion into a modern coastal vessel. In 1988, the “Oosterschelde” was returned to the Netherlands. The Rotterdam Sailing Ships Foundation took over the fundraising necessary to finance the restoration of the ship to its original condition.

The “Oosterschelde” is now the only remaining representative of a large fleet of schooners that sailed under the Dutch flag at the beginning of the last century. It is registered as a monument by the Dutch Ministry of Culture. The “Oosterschelde” is autonomous and is used in domestic and foreign ports for presentation and promotion activities. domestic and foreign ports for presentation activities and by companies and other organisations. In 1998, the “Oosterschelde” completed a one and a half year voyage around the world. The ship sailed to Antarctica, the Falklands and South Georgia.
