    One would say it's you who's been having all that whiskey instead of Grey Roger:drunk

    Seeing the Thalassa brings back some memories. I'm glad to see the old girl is still sailing about.:)

    When I got my boat last year, @Grey Roger decided to Photoshop a pirate flag and cannons on her.
    Today in port, it was no longer Photoshop! :cheeky

    @Grey Roger,
    You´re a good storyteller. I did read the whole thing, and well, I would love to make such a trip by my own only cause of your words and pictures. Have fun until the last day! :yes

    Superb! :aar Now you just need the cannons. Or at least, paint on some fake gunports.

    Thanks, I did. :bounce

    I had a look at the website for the Thalassa:
    Tallship Thalassa - Welcome
    They have something called Milesmakers:
    Tallship Thalassa - Milesmakers
    They aren't kidding about the reduced prices. Cruises are all over 1000 euros. Milesmakers are between 300 and 490 euros. Unlike the themed cruises, the Milesmakers are all about the sailing - the ship is in transit between cruises, and you get to join in all shipboard activities. I've had my sailing holiday for this year, but this is definitely to be considered for the future...

    :rofl :rofl :rofl
    Actually, I just discussed with a colleague that the next step should be to hoist that flag while sailing. :sail

    Ooohh.... clever! It is the actual sailing that interests me anyway.
    If you intend to go again next year, why don't you let me know? I've always wanted to do a trip like this and never did.
    Would definitely like an excuse to make it happen! :woot

    You might want to check the legality of that. In times gone by, merely having the flag on board could get you in trouble. Presumably the law has relaxed a bit if you haven't been arrested for displaying it while in port, but you don't want a naval patrol boat to interrupt your moment of fun...

    If I do sign up for another voyage, of whatever type, you can be sure I'll announce it here!

    True.

    I did see a yacht in a marina flying a pirate flag last year, so I figured if they can do it, so can I.
    But I only had it flying for less than 5 minutes, purely as a joke.
    Of course that happened to be exactly the five minutes during which my next-door yacht owner happened to show up, so that made for a good first introduction! :razz

    I sincerely doubt there are (m)any naval patrol boats sailing around the IJsselmeer. :ninja

    Sounds like a plan. :onya

    In the Foundation that used to own the ship in my avatar, we sometimes did short trips for children and a couple of times the black was hoisted while sailing, much to the children's approval:pirateraft

    I may require a new signature at some point.
    Used to be fictional captain of the "Amsterdam". Now am the REAL captain of another boat whose name starts with an "A". :cheeky
