The FLINTERDUIN and friends sailing from the Netherlands to New York Harbor.

The Dutch are at it again.  Sailing into New York Harbor to navigate the Hudson…like Henry did.  And no, the ship in the shot isn’t a freighter of a new multi-masted design.   Look closer.  The FLINTERDUIN is delivering to 20 vessels any day now to the mouth of the Hudson River as part of the quadricentennial celebration of Hudson’s exploration of that great river.   Look to The Old Salt Blog, Rick Spilman’s blog, for more information and as well as Sea History.   The Dutch sails will be a great sight to see.   Another source of information on the celebration is the 400th commission’s website.
