Sailing on the Gallant
Leave the stress and strain of daily life behind you the moment we set sail, whether you come sailing for
a day, a weekend or longer.
A voyage on the Gallant is always an adventure. During your trip you help out with sailing the ship just
as much as you are able, with or without any previous experience - hoisting the sails, coiling the ropes,
taking a turn behind the wheel, or navigating - sitting on deck in the sunshine or watching the sun set,
is as much a part of the Gallant experience. We hope you return home richer from the experience.
We organise a full programme of voyages from April to October in Dutch an European waters. We have
all kinds of trips on offer, from a day-long Taster trip along the coast from Amsterdam, to ocean sailing
off Brittany, or exploring Norwegian fiords and Hebridean islands.

Bring a duvet cover and pillow case, we provide pillows and duvets.
The Gallant was originally built as a herring drifter, named Jannetje Margaretha, at Vlaardingen in 1916.
Some 70 years later, the Tall Ship Gallant Foundation salvaged the hull and set out to restore it to its former
glory as a two-masted topsail schooner. The project was part of a government-aided employment scheme to
provide young people with work experience.
