Step on board in St. Nazaire, a French coastal town in the estuary of the Loire-river. From here, we’ll sail ‘home’.

Voyage description

When you arrive, the Oosterschelde is in St Nazaire, at the estuary of the Loire. The Breton coast is beautiful. On our journey north through the deep waters of Biscay, we pass several islands where we might make a stop. But this is not going to be a voyage of discovery along the Breton coast. If you want to, you should join us on our journey from Vannes at the end of May.

This voyage, we have to cover a somewhat greater distance and that means that we set sail as quickly as possible. All persons on board will of course receive instruction and are cordially invited to participate. And then we go “on hold”. Everyone is classified and part of the crew. We relieve each other at the helm, we navigate and of course we set more sail where possible, or reef sails where necessary.

Ouessant marks the end of the Bay of Biscay and the beginning of the English Channel. Or La Manche, as the French say. Around us we see more and more ships, this sea is very busy. But under sail we are allowed to stay outside the shipping lanes and we choose the route that is most favorable in terms of wind, because we want sailing. If we haven’t stopped before, we might stop at Alderney. This channel island is located in the middle of the route, so we will pass right by it anyway. Then we sail through the narrow of Calais (or Dover Straits, according to the English) into the North Sea. With a bit of luck we will be the chalk cliffs on both the English and French sides. If you don’t go to sea very often you will be surprised how busy it is here. More and more enormous wind farms are making the sailing area smaller and smaller and all ships sail through the same designated sailing routes. It is impressive. And then we arrive in perhaps the most beautiful seaport in the Netherlands: Scheveningen. At the end of the afternoon we say goodbye to each other.

Level 1

Level 1 trips are suitable for anyone in good health. We sail, for example, in sheltered waters or close to shore. In heavy weather, we can seek shelter in a port or opt for a more sheltered route.

The shipping company would like the OOSTERSCHELDE to be accessible to the widest possible audience, but you must realize that you are making a voyage aboard a seagoing tall ship. This requires more of your physical ability than a daily walk. Some voyages are more challenging than others. With the different levels, we give an indication of how heavy the voyage can be. If you are unsure whether a voyage is suitable for you, it is important to contact shipping company OOSTERSCHELDE for advice
