Vannes (FR) – St. Nazaire (FR)


On arrival, the Oosterschelde will be anchored in Port Blanc. The crew will take you on board with the dinghy. Over the next few days, we will make a trip that will end at the mouth of the Loire, in St Nazaire. The distance between Vannes and St Nazaire is not long. So we have the whole duration of the trip to discover the beautiful Breton coast. And it’s worth it, because not only are there beautiful historic ports that we can visit, but there are also many small and large islands where we can anchor and, while we are here, we certainly also want to have the opportunity to do some tasting of the local cuisine. So it will be a trip in which we will alternate sailing with the boat with visits to the most beautiful places in this area.

The captain makes a plan based on the forecast for several days. The first night we may drop anchor in Belle le. Shall we then sail south to the island of Noirmoutier, in the direction of La Rochelle, or shall we first look north to Lorient, Île de Groix or Concarneau? Let’s let time (and the captain) decide and enjoy our voyage of discovery.

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.
