A ship is as strong as the crew is
… Thats why it is important to have a experienced crew on board.
Tsjerk Hoekstra is Captain owner since 2003. But it is better to say that the ship owns us . Because the ship is since 1889 sailed and maintaned by a big group of people. If we maintan her right she will survive us all. In the beginning Tsjerk sailed almost all of the time. Last years we build up a team of experincied proffesionals to share the responisblity for the ship. We are proud to sail on such a beautiful ship.
