"Stortemelk" - Sailing ship

A former North Sea Fisherman

"Foaming milk" - Dutch: "Stortemelk" is the name given to the turbulent fairway between the Dutch Wadden Sea islands of Vlieland and Terschelling. This phenomenon gave the ship its name, which was built in 1962 as a North Sea fisherman for this area. But in 1992 fishing ended, the ship was converted into a sailing ship and since then has taken paying charter guests on board. The 2-mast schooner offers cosy saloons, a well-stocked bar and nine comfortable cabins.  Since 2012, a proud lady has been guarding the ship as a figurehead, whose long, white hair forms turbulent waves.

The "Stortemelk" is a repeatedly seen guest in Bremerhaven.
