CELEBRATION On the 9th of September, we celebrate this special anniversary and everyone is invited! In honor of this special moment the ship is berthed at the Maritime Museum in Rotterdam. During the whole day (from 11:00 to 16:00 hrs.) there will be activities on the quay and on board. There will be music, food and drinks and everyone can visit the ship and toast together with the crew and all others to the next 100 years!
GIFT Everyone is welcome on the 9th of September. With or without a gift. But if you want to give something to the ship and you don’t know what, we would like to ask you to support to the voyage with the youngsters by becoming a contributor. You can transfer your contribution (a minimum of 25 Euro for private persons and a minimum of 125 Euro for companies per year) to IBAN: NL85 INGB 0000 106257, in name of The Rotterdam Sailing Ship Foundation in Rotterdam. All contributors receive the Oosterschelde/Helena Newsletter twice a year
100 YEARS YOUNG In November 1917, the threemasted schooner ‘Oosterschelde’ was launched at H. Appelo & Sons shipyard. This year the ship celebrates her 100-year anniversary. One hundred years ‘young’, because the ship sails like she never did before! It has been 25 years since the restoration and from that moment the ship has sailed all over the world, followed and admired by a big group of supporters.
YOUNGSTER SET COURSE FOR THE FUTURE (11-14 SEPTEMBER) The 100-year-old ‘Oosterschelde’ is going to work together with JINC to help youngsters set course to prepare themselves better for the labour market. VMBO students from LMC Veenoord in Rotterdam-South will get the chance to develop their ‘Next Century Skills’ by hands-on experience on board. The focus of the program will be on personal leadership: What can I do to positively influence my life. Mayor of Rotterdam A. Aboutaleb will personally come by to wish ‘Oosterschelde’ and her young crew bon voyage.
