Remarkable Dutch barge sailing film

Here’s some great footage of Dutch barge sailing in the late 1960s, from the Bert Haanstra documentary Stem van het water (The Voice of the Water). I love the finale!

  1. Fantastic action but what was really great to see was the tug arriving to pull the barge upright with BRUTE force. No jumping on the centre board and hoping over the gunwale as she hopefully rises. I have sailed on Islemere and it can get really rough.
