French Frigate L'Hermione

Recommended Posts

The Shtandart frigate is smaller and "simpler". It takes 10 to 20 sailors to sail the Shtandart, while it takes a minimum of 80 sailors for the Hermione, and after a few storms we find that 80 sailors is too few. We're going to try to put 100 sailors in the next few sailings.

Several sailors from the Hermione sailed on the Shtandart. We often see it in France. They are great sailors and we respect them a lot!

In winter 2018/2019 the Shtandart spent its winter at La Rochelle, 20 minutes by car from Rochefort (Hermione's home port), the crew of the shtandart came aboard to visit us.

There are big differences between the two frigates:

Shtandart:
sail area = 660 m² (14 sails)
synthetic sails
Tonnage: 220 t

The Hermione:
sail area = 2100 m² (17 sails)
linen sails
Tonnage: 1100 t

The big advantage of the Shtandart is that they can navigate very easily and much more than the Hermione... A day of sailing on the Hermione costs about 10000€!!!!!!!!!!!

Furling main-topsail
With these conditions, after this kind of exercise you are usually a little tired...

Great stuff, and now we have al those modern day tools, navigation, safety precautions etc, i can only imagine how life must have been on a frigate 200 years ago..damn hard life for sure.

Штандартский фрегат меньше и «проще». Парусник Штандарта требует от 10 до 20 моряков, а Гермионе - не менее 80 моряков, и после нескольких штормов мы обнаруживаем, что 80 моряков - это слишком мало. Мы попытаемся посадить 100 моряков в следующие несколько плаваний.

Несколько матросов из Гермионы плыли на Штандарт. Мы часто видим это во Франции. Они замечательные моряки, и мы их очень уважаем!

Зимой 2018/2019 года «Штандарт» провел зиму в Ла-Рошели, в 20 минутах езды на машине от Рошфора (порт приписки Гермионы), команда штандарта прибыла на борт, чтобы навестить нас.

Есть большие различия между двумя фрегатами:

Штандарт:
площадь паруса = 660 м² (14 парусов),
синтетические паруса
Тоннаж: 220 т

Гермиона:
площадь паруса = 2100 м² (17 парусов)
льняные паруса
Тоннаж: 1100 т

Большим преимуществом Штандарта является то, что они могут перемещаться очень легко и намного больше, чем Гермиона ... День плавания на Гермионе стоит около 10000 € !!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, there's a big difference in the ships.
Thank you so much for the videos, photos and posts

Good! Good! Did you do the open tour or the guided tour? I have to go back to the site to work a little bit!

A volunteer of the ship evoked the next long voyage in the footsteps of a great explorer whose vanished expedition to Vanikoro ... 😎

The Hermione-La Fayette association is working on future trips, several tracks are being studied, but nothing is fixed. The frigate will not sail in 2020, probably in 2021. It's a long way, but we're waiting and working on the site to get it ready to plough the seas! :)
