The Tall Ships

You will see the “Capitan Miranda’ from Uruguay with its swinging crew and South-American music on board. Another South-American ship is the ‘Cisne Branco’ from Brazil, sister ship of the ‘Stad Amsterdam’, which will visit DelfSail for the first time. The ‘Mystic’, from the United States, will even cross the ocean for this event. Furthermore, the German Marine will spare no expense and bring the largest ship of its fleet, the ‘Berlin’. Naturally, also an enormous, beautiful fleet of Dutch Tall Ships will be present, including ships such as the ‘Europa’ and the ‘Eendracht’, but also an alluring replica of one of the ships of the time of the VOC, ‘het Utrechts Statenjacht’ (the Utrecht State-Yacht).
