nature with a sailing adventure
With her flat bottom and shallow draught, the Elizabeth can venture where even small yachts would run aground. At low water the clipper can beach itself on a sandbank in the middle of the Waddenzee and continue the trip when the water returns. Staying on board the Elizabeth is not only an exciting sailing adventure but also provides a unique way to experience the natural environment.
