While sailing through the waters of the city center of Utrecht, the Roman Ships Utrecht Foundation wants to offer informative and educational packages on reconstructed Roman ships. The Municipal Executive has expressed a positive attitude to this by letter to the city council.
The Roman Ships Foundation has now received an operating license from the municipality of Utrecht for offering informative and educational sailing arrangements through the waters of Utrecht's city center. A mooring permit has also been issued for a few weeks in July and September 2020 for a mooring on the Oosterkade, in the 'mooring zone for historic ships'. The aim of this period is to organize a few sea trials with the Roman ship Per Mare. The Commission is positive about the initiative of the Roman Ships Utrecht Foundation and will participate in the sea trials. If this succeeds, the Commission wants to make agreements with the foundation about the follow-up.
