Editor’s Note: The Onrust will return to New York in September, joining a Dutch government flotilla of modern warships and 17th-century-style flat-bottomed boats brought to New York on freighters for the quadricentennial celebration. After the festivities, Onrust will continue sailing upstate and elsewhere as a floating classroom to teach early American Dutch history.
