Overview

Heritage Sailing Tasmania showcases SV Rhona H Gaff rigged Ketch. She is an historic vessel: built in 1942 by the famous ship wright Ned Jack. We offer a range of tours from private trips, public sails, cruises in the River Derwent and further afield. Our regular schedule is to sail Saturdays and Sunday's and in summer offer twilight excursions as well! All proceeds gained form the boat go back into the maintenance of the vessel and keeping the "Head Waves" philosophy alive. Head Waves: 1. Traditional sailing and nautical skills on an authentic historic vessel 2. Conservation and environmental awareness 3. Health promotion with an emphasis of "mindfulness" and being in the moment as part of a great team. We feature Tasmanian products on all our trips: every sail includes refreshments! Contact us to discover all the opportunities available.

Thanks for choosing to sail with us Caroline. Winter sailing can be rather cool and the hot water bottles have become a regular feature. Looking forward to hosting your group again for another Rhona H experience. Best wishes to all.

A gorgeous old 1942 sailing boat lovingly cared for by an enthusiastic crew of volunteers, who looked after their passengers just as well. Happy to let me take the wheel, under instruction of course! Was a real thrill. A really tasty hot and cold afternoon...More

Had a wonderful 2 hour sail this afternoon afternoon. Beautiful blue skies, enough wind to keep the sails going and just a very nice relaxed atmosphere. Really enjoyed the trip with Julie and her crew.
