"Atyla" - Sailing ship

International training ship from Spain

The "Atyla" has only been sailing the seas for 35 years, but its appearance leads directly into the 16th century. The schooner is modelled on a ship with which the Spanish explorer Juan Sebastian d´Elcano was the first to circumnavigate the world completely between 1519 and 1522. Also the "Atyla" was supposed to sail around the world, but the plan broke down and so the wooden two-master crosses until today with sailing fans especially in Spanish waters. Since 2013 the "Atyla" is also part of the International Sail family and was already in 2015 at the SAIL Bremerhaven in the seaside town. Thanks to a total loss the Bremerhavener had the opportunity to admire the beautiful ship with the red hull for months after the Windjammerfestival. But the Sail Training Association Germany donated money, a suitable exchange engine was found and so the schooner sails again with trainees and full paying guests between the Spanish mainland and the islands.
