The Global Voyage will be undertaken aboard the spectacular, historic tall ship, Oosterschelde.
Built in 1917, this uniquely restored ship is one of the most beautiful historic vessels afloat. Oosterschelde is 50 metres long with an incredible 36 metre mast and carries almost 900 square metres of sail. She has the ability to hold 24 voyage crew.
Oosterschelde journeyed to more than 55 countries on five continents and has successfully completed two past global voyages in 1996-98 and 2012-14. During these global journeys, the ship visited Antarctica, the Falklands, South Georgia and many other incredible destinations.
In August 2023, Oosterschelde set sail to complete the DARWIN200 Global Voyage, which consists of 32 voyage legs sailing from England to Australia and back. She will make landfall at key locations where Charles Darwin stepped ashore during the voyage of HMS Beagle.
