Planning a trip on the Leewin

Recommended Posts

How could you not go for the "3 hour cruise" when they are serving canapes, tea and coffee?????

 

Hmmm...where have i heard that "3 hour cruise" term before....

Pythogian,

 

I'm not sure you'll learn much in three hours, despite the blurb. If I were you, I'd book on one of their week long cruises, where you actually get to live aboard and 'learn the ropes'.

 

As for the seasickness, there are ways to overcome that!

 

Incidentally, the galleon is long gone. The present Leeuwin is a rather later barquentine.

"Climb the prow"?  Who the heck wrote that rubbish?  Three hours under sail on a ship that size would be a great experience, mate.  Maybe you'll be sailing south in behind Garden Island where it's nice and calm.

The "3-hour" cruise might not be a bad first trip.  Take some Dramamine with you and be wary if the first mate is named "Gilligan".  If all goes well, then think about a longer trip.  Could be fun.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
