  1. That is a beautiful ship! Did not look - at least to me - like a passenger ship.

  3. What a beauty! It's nice to see that windships are still being sailed. I'd love to take a trip on this one.

  4. Wouldn't it be lovely to sail away on this beauty! When you say passenger ship, does this mean a private vessel? or a tour boat? Beautiful calm sea at least at once his moment!

  5. Ha Bill. Wat 'n verrassing om dit zeilschip, dat onder de Nederlandse vlag vaart, te zien op je blog. Mooie foto heb je er van gemaakt.
    Groet kees.

  8. This company has whiskey and golf travels on his program mostly in and around Scotland but Ireland is not far away and has also great whiskey. 10 days for € 1100,- or starting in Belfast and part sailing and part traveling by bike in Northern Ireland.

  14. THALASSA was the primordial ancient Greek goddess of the sea. Mingled with Pontus, her male counterpart, she produced the fish and other sea creatures. A perfect name for this beautiful tall ship.

  15. I'm re-reading Nathaniel Philbrick's "Sea of Glory", filled with stories about sailing ships like this. :-)
