About the Eye of the Wind Eye of the Wind is a brig, with two masts carrying 8,000 square feet of tanbark sail. Built in 1911 in Germany, she went through a complete restoration period in 1973-75, and completed her last refit in 2002. She is completely outfitted with up-to-date navigation & communication equipment, as well as safety equipment to international standards.
The ambition of the Captain and his crew is to ensure that guests have the best tall ship experience of their lives in new and exciting locations. Eye's crew are all proud of their ship and enjoy teaching the fundamentals to beginning tall ship sailors. From basic deck work, to working aloft and furling sails - the crew guides the beginners through every process. When the veteran square rig sailor steps aboard Eye of the Wind he/she can count on quick assimilation into the regular watch routine and friendly atmosphere on deck.
The crew looks forward to welcoming you aboard to share "the magic" - sailing an old square rigger without sacrificing the comforts of modern life. They are committed to making your voyage aboard Eye of the Wind a great one.
