Duyfken to set sail on Swan River

Not since 2006 have the sails of Duyfken graced the waters of the Swan River in Perth.

It’s been a long eight years but now the people of Perth are about to get a big surprise … a small ‘tall-ship’ under sail right before their very eyes.

Nothing better than to see Duyfken sailing before a fresh south westerly, rocking along at 3½ knots as she heads from Point Walter to the Narrows Bridge.

The day sail program gets under way mid-October from Duyfken’s new upriver residence at Mounts Bay Sailing Club, Australia 2 Dve, Crawley.

Initially Duyfken will do twilight sails (4pm-7pm) on Thursdays and Fridays with a family styled adventure sail on Sundays (3pm-6pm) each week.

Bookings will open Friday September 19th on the website … so keep a lookout!
