The tall ship Mercedes

Comments (0)

The Dutch tall ship Mercedes will return to Falmouth in the spring offering a series of sailing days.

It follows positive feedback from the brig's visit last year when people were able to learn the ropes and help sail it or sit back and let the crew do the work.

The tall ship was launched in 2005, has a 35 metre mast and is driven by square and fore-and-aft sails.

Falmouth Tall Ships Association secured the return visit and Sara Pugh from the association said: "This is a wonderful opportunity for anybody with an interest in tall ships to come and experience one of the very finest."

Mercedes will sail three times between March 29 and April 1.
