Gallant
A fast logger.
Formerly a herring logger, the Gallant has been completely restored to serve the purpose as Sail Training Ship: These days the Gallant sails the North-European waters, among which the English channel, the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. This fast logger is present at many sail events, like the l`Armada`s in Brest, Sail Douarnenez en Sail Amsterdam. Annually the Gallant competes in the Race of the Classics between IJmuiden (NL) and Ramsgate (UK) and was winner in this race in 1998 and 1999. Also the Tall Ships` Race is on the agenda.

Accommodation


What used to be a fishing hold is turned into a pleasant dayroom on the lower deck with large tables, couches and a specious, seaworthy galley. The vessel can accommodate 19 people in two-person to four-person cabins. The showers (2) and lavatories are communal. Bring your own sleeping bag and bedding.

History


The Gallant was launched as sail logger in 1916 carrying the name `Jannetje Margaretha` on the shipyard of the brothers Figee in Vlaardingen. The Gallant served as a herring logger at the North Sea. After that the ship was sold to a Dane and from then on was put into service as a cargo ship. In 1987 it returned under Dutch flag and was completely restored to accommodate trainee and work experience projects for Amsterdam youth. Since then the Gallant serves - in full glory - as sail training ship on the North Sea, Baltic Sea and English Channel.
