Stad Amsterdam visits Hout Bay!

Stad Amsterdam is a spectacular 250' clipper - following the voyage of Darwin's Beagle on a circumnavigation. See the website.

We were very fortunate to have this magnificent vessel spend Sunday morning in our bay over the past weekend. The Dutch contingent were much in evidence in smart orange blazers, and many out on boats. The heritage foundation fired a number of salutes from the historical cannons at East Fort, with a response from the Stad Amsterdam.

I will post more photos in the gallery as time allows.
