It’s not often that you can really be a part of history… but the Angele Aline is a little ship that allows you the feeling that you truly are! Joining her for part of her charity voyage this autumn gives you the opportunity to sail a Dunkirk veteran with an impressive pedigree.
Launched at the birth of the Jazz Age, she survived the Depression and rescued countless Allied troops during the famous evacuation in 1940. Her latest voyage will also save and improve lives, raising money for two diverse, but equally important charities: East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices and the Vila Maninga project in Mozambique.
In autumn 2008 the Angele Aline is sailing the east cost of Britain, navigating the Caledonian Canal and Loch Ness, visiting the Scottish Western Islands, returning through the Canal, stopping at Inverness, Edinburgh and Whitby, and finally returning to the home berth in Woolverstone.
There are still a few vacancies to crew the Angele Aline between 6th September and 1st November – whether you are an experienced sailor or a novice. There is a very special price offered for these late places: just £275 per person for one week, or £500 for two.
The Angele Aline has been fitted out in style: retaining all the originality of her early history, she is now comfortable, with a feeling of spacious intimacy. If you want privacy, there’s the option of the 'Owner Cabin', with en suite toilet, at £775 per week (double occupancy). And you will not be expected to crew on an empty stomach – there’s a well stocked galley!
