From http://www.naupar.com/ships/soeverein/ : "The Soeverein is an impressive sight without equal. The boat pays homage to the East Indiamen of the Golden Age. The design is based on specific characteristics of these 17th century ships ..."

It is Junne and quite expensive to get a place on, especially during events like SAIL Amsterdam! We were invited for free at a small boat owned by our daughter and son-in-law.

Great serie of course !
perhaps you know in France this meeting took place in 2008, " l 'Armada de Rouen" , i think it takes place each 5 years in Amsterdam too !
I'm from the East, not so near from the ocean, what a pity because this meeting is absolutly fabulous
i visited for about ten years the building of the " Hermione " in Rochfort a superb project which is still in progress, have a look if you want want under the following link....

I've never been lucky enough to see these in person!! I love the gracefulness of these tall ships!

Linda, I am still waiting for a view of these ships under full sail. Once, in 2008, at the Tall Ship Races in Den Helder, we saw such a ship, but for my eyes the distance was too large to appreciate the image (and my photo was worthless too).
