Windships | Windschoenerbrik



Windschoenerbrik is a concept of Ron de Vos in the sailing cargo trade.
Windschoenerbrik is suitable for coastal trade.

The fine lines of Windschoenerbrik are based on the fast schooners built by H.M.T. van Cleef in the middle of the nineteenth century.
In the beginning he had worked together with Abbema on the shipyard IJhoek on the Grote Wittenburgerstraat in Amsterdam-East. He moved to a yard in Alkmaar and built in 1858 the schooner Cornelia Aletta.

I have slightly altered the lines of Windschoenerbrik in order to meet the requirements of this time. The bow is in accordance Windship I.

The rig of Windschoenerbrik is a dyna rig whereby the front mast bears dyna yards. Behind the two masts a triangular mainsail can be set. Both sails can be furled in and out. The two masts are formed just like those on Windship I as a tripod, a mast with two supporting poles. Each mast is again trapezoidal.
