The Dutch three-masted schooner ‘Oosterschelde’

Looking forward to the 2016 North Sea Tall Ships Regatta in Blyth.

Here’s an image from the 2010 event in Hartlepool. A stormy start for the Parade of Sail shows the Dutch Schooner ‘Oosterschelde’ just before a cloud burst !

“The three-masted topsail schooner ‘Oosterschelde’ is the last remaining representative of the large fleet of schooners that sailed under the Dutch flag at the beginning of the 20th century. As the largest restored Dutch sailing ship the ‘Oosterschelde’ is a monument for Dutch shipbuilding and maritime navigation under sail”
