Tall ship stops in Bermuda

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

A Holland-based tall ship for students, the Gulden Leeuw,, has called on Bermuda for the week.

The three-masted topsail schooner, whose name means “Golden Lion”, has more than 60 trainees on board and 20 staff, and is expected to head on tomorrow.

Ilya Cherapau, manager of the Bermuda Sailors Home, said the stop on the island gave students a chance to meet parents and enjoy some shore time.

He added: “The home offers rest and recreation for seafarers — often all they need is a quiet place to check wi-fi and relax.”

The ship, which sails all over the world, arrived in Bermuda last weekend on its way north from the Caribbean.
