In my post of November 4, 2012 http://www.mirjam-terpstra.com/?p=417 I mentioned the journey with the Sedov during DelfSail 2009. In the context of the project “Pilots of the World” I want to show the work of the pilots in the north of the Netherlands. Because I didn’t actually sail with the pilots of The North, I decided to publish a pilotage of the tallship Sedov at DelfSail.Read More

During the Sail Out of DelfSail 2009 I sailed with pilot Erik Koenz during the pilotage of the Norwegian tall ship “Sörlandet” from Delfzijl direction Borkum. The ship “Sörlandet” is a former school ship, now used for offering adventure sailings for young people of all ages”, based in Kristiansand. What I particularly liked that the crew consisted of many women.

During DelfSail I had the opportunity to sail with the pilot on the “Cisne Branco”. It was an early start but worthwhile. The weather was good and the light was beautiful. On the way from Eemshaven to the “Cisne Branco” I had a beautiful sight on the other ships. When we arrived at the “Cisne Branco” everyone was still asleep and the deck was complete empty. Later the sailors and crew climbed up the mast and the rigging to prepare the ship to sail. Of the pilotage I made a photo shoot and a compilation I put in a YouTube video (including with Brazilian music from Joao Gilberto).
