De Eendracht has a rich history dating back to October 5, 1938. In the thirties, motorized shipping nearly pushed professional sailing. A change that many people were worried about, because the knowledge of sea sailing was lost and with it the valuable cooperation that leads to team spirit and perseverance.
The founding fathers of the Eendracht have retained training opportunities on a large sailing ship with the establishment of the National Association ‘Het Zeilend Schoolschip’. The initiator and first chairman was Mr. C.J. Jaski. Scion from a famous sailor family and from Schiermonnikoog. In 2010 his name is still connected to the Eendracht. His immediate family member Mr. B. Jaski is the current chairman of the Sailing ship Eendracht. foundation.
Due to the Second World War and its economic consequences, the construction of a private sailing ship was delayed. Thanks in particular to the many volunteers and the support of patron Z.K.H. Prins Bernhard, the first Eendracht was launched in 1974. The current ship, the three-masted schooner, was baptized on 29 August 1989 by Her Majesty Queen Beatrix. The discovery of the elements of the sea is still central.
