Astrid
A spectaculair competitor.

This Tall Ship has sailed under many flags, among others the Lebanese and English flag. With a length of 41,65 metres, the Astrid is the smallest Tall Ships in the fleet. But nonetheless impressive due to the large amount of sailsand yards. The Astrid has competed in many races, such as the Transatlantic Tall Ships` Race and the annual Heineken Race of the Classics. In 1996 this vessel was the winner in its class at the Tall Ships` Race and in 2003 the Astrid became third during the Hansesail-Regatta in Rostock. This summer the Astrid will participate in the Tall Ships` Races and coming fall in the Funchall 500 Regatta.

Accommodation


The Astrid has got two deckhouses. The stern deckhouse stores all navigation equipment and ocean maps, whereas the spacious front deckhouse has a cosy bar. On the lower deck you will find eight two-person cabins, four of which can be used as a three-person cabin, five communal showers, six lavatories and a well equipped galley.

History

The Astrid was built in 1918 as a freight logger in a Dutch shipyard. The ship was sold of due to the decease of the Swedish Captain Albert Edmund Frohm and the diminished demand for coasters of this seize. Since 1970 it sailed under the Lebanese flag and the wildest rumours were spread involving drug smuggling. Below the English coast a fierce fire aboard the ship ended the alleged practices. The pensioned English Marine Officers Graham Neilson and John Amos (from Class Yachts Endeavour) saved the iron body from the breakers. The Astrid was completely renovated and equipped with impressive brig rigging. Nowadays it has returned sailing under the Dutch flag.
