Stortemelk

Ship

History

The ‘Stortemelk’, launched as a fishing boat in 1961, was converted into a sailing vessel in 1992. Under the supervision of the Dutch Shipping Inspection, an elegant, fast and safe sailing schooner has been brought about, being able to sail in worldwide waters. The extensive navigation and safety technology enables the Stortemelk to receive the certificate “Driving areas worldwide”.

The ‘Stortemelk’ owes her name to the notorious fairway between the Dutch Wadden Shallows of Vlieland and Terschelling. If there is a westerstorm and low tide the boisterous waves in the mouth of the harbour had been described by seamen as “poured milk”, later as ‘Stortemelk’.

Slim lines and an efficient rigging confer the ship a sporting appearance, with excellent sailing qualities.

Rope plan Stortemelk 2021

We can only give you a rough overview of how to fasten which ropes of which sails to the individual nails. When you are on board, it may be possible that an assignment of individual sails has changed for various reasons. You will get a briefing on board and if you are not sure there is of course the team to help you and answer your questions.
