Sail Training


(Small Ship) Class B

Maybe, a 1920’s Dutch sailing ketch, made out of wood, launched in 1933, was designed for round the world cruising. She has been completely restored recently and returned to the Tall Ships races. Maybe has a full schedule

of sailing in Tall Ships events and school sail training trips. She has sailed in Tall Ships Races from the Baltic to the Mediterranean and is a big competitor in her class.


Maybe, launched in 1933, built by De Vries Lentsch in Amsterdam. Maybe underwent a complete refit with a new rig after World War II and took part in the first ever Tall Ships Race in 1956. She sailed mainly around the Mediterranean and in the 70's regularly crossed the Atlantic between the West Indies and the Mediterranean. In the 80's she also sailed through the Panama Canal and up the east coast of the USA to Canada. Maybe was sold to the present owners in 1989 and underwent another complete restoration returning to sailing in 2007. With small changes to her rigging and sails she gets faster and faster each year.


Maybe has a capacity of 18 people with extensive accommodation below deck including a chart room, engine room, two 2 person cabins, one 3 person cabin, one 4 person cabin and one 6 person cabin, 2 toilets, 2 showers and a large lounge/galley area fitted with all modern conveniences. The wooden framing can be seen throughout the interior of the ship, giving it a warm and pleasant atmosphere.

What shall I bring with me?

Bring practical clothing and lots of ‘layers’. Wearing layers just means that you’re ready for all conditions and you’ll (hopefully) never get cold. Walking boots, welly’s or sailing boots/shoes are recommended. A sun hat and warm hat are helpful, as is sun cream and waterproof trousers and jackets – you never know what the weather will do. Bring a swimming costume/shorts. Don’t forget your sunglasses! Gloves will be needed for sailing and handling ropes. A note book, sketchbook and novel will keep you busy in between watches. A head torch is handy for night and evening watches. There is bedding however an all-season sleeping is a good idea and an extra warm fleece even if it is the summer.

Oh – don’t forget your camera, you’re going to see some amazing sights!
