Go triple Dutch
Three Dutch Tall Ships, the fishing lugger 'Tecla', the bark 'Europa' and the three-masted schooner 'Oosterschelde', are sailing around the world; wandering the oceans and following the old trade routes of historic times.

Their epic voyage started in the Netherlands in September 2012. The 3 ships were together to see 'Europa' off to Antarctica. In May 2013 the 3 ships met again in Cape Town, South Africa where they then sailed to Mauritius before crossing the Indian Ocean to land in the port of Fremantle in Western Australia where they are due to dock on 3rd August.

The Tall Ships will arrive in Port Adelaide on August 28th and stay till September 1st before heading to Melbourne, Hobart, Sydney and then to Auckland in New Zealand.

South Australia's very own Tall Ships - the Falie and the One & All will join the trio at McLaren Wharf (next to the lighthouse) in Port Adelaide for a spectacular heritage maritime display. The Falie was built in 1919 in the Netherlands and is the same class of ship as the Tecla.

Hi I know a guy who works on the Aussie ship and he tells me the cost is very cheap to go on board to check out the ships. About $2
hope that helps. Kim
