Johanna LucretiaGo to bookings and prices The Johanna Lucretia was built in 1945 at the Rhoose shipyard in Ghent, Belgium. Although originally built as a fishing vessel, she was never used for this purpose. After changing ownership a couple of times she ended up at her present owners who gave her a big restoration, from top to bottom in 2008/2009. Because of horrendous weather in the first sailing season she had another visit to the shipyard in 2009/2010. In which they upgraded the electronic navigation equipment and associated systems. Now she is ready to hit the high seas!
During the Tall Ships Races 2012, the Johanna Lucretia was Class B Over-All Winner at corrected time.

HistoryThe Johanna Lucretia was built in 1945 at the Rhoose shipyard in Gent, Belguim. Although originally built as a fishing vessel she was never used for this purpose. Before being sold se laid as a completed hull on the mooring. In 1954 she was converted and completed for recreational use by her new owner and sailed Dutch waters from her homeport Enkhuizen.
In 1989 there was a change of ownership, now a British citizen who registered Johanna as national vessel with Plymouth as new homeport. In 1991/1992 she was refitted at T Nielsen & Co. Ltd. in Gloucester UK to her present configuration. Afterwards se was used for sail training and private charter from Gibraltar, The Caribbean and the East Coast of the USA.
In 2001 she changed ownership again and for reasons unknown, she lay abandoned in the Gloucester Docks (UK). The ship is confiscated by the British Waterways and subsequently sold to her present owner.
Nowadays she sails all over Europe.
Whales and sharks
Today we had the company of 2 Minke whales, a smaller whale seen around the world. At first we just saw their water fountain, but after a while they started flapping their tails and jumping half out of the water! It was amazing to see. Everybody was on deck, clapping and cheering! Just before that we had done a MOB exercise and while we were explaining how it was going to work, we saw a small fin, just 20meters beside the ship!
Today, due to lack off wind, we have not been sailing, we tried last night, but drifted backwards with the current. Yesterday during the day we had some good wind, but on the nose, so we tacked our way up. It was good practise for the cadets, steering, changing running backstays and some sheet handling.
Right now the vessels are close together, during the day we might throw anchor before entering Durban.
