Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ship Atyla


The wooden schooner ATYLA was built by hand in Spain between 1980 and 1984. She was designed to look like the sailing vessels from the 1800s and built with the intention of circumnavigating the earth and then becoming a training ship. Although she never did that trip and instead sailed around Spain for almost all her life, in 2013 the nephew of the original owner took over and decided to finally dedicate her to international sail training.

They even have a watch leader program to help youngsters practise leadership. Her captain Rodrigo and the rest of the crew are well known among the tall ships fleet for their friendly and outgoing nature. ATYLA won the Friendship Trophy in the Black Sea Regatta 2014.
