Houthuizer Molen - Setting Sails

A vrijwilliger (volunteer miller) climbs the vanes one by one, to unfurl the sails and tie them flat over the frame, after having rotated the vanes one at a time downward and also pointing the mill head into the direction of the wind.

 

My presence on SC will be a bit erratic in the coming days but I will look in as I can.

S'ils montent jusqu'en haut, il ne faut pas avoir le vertige.
Un sacré travail celui de meunier.
Bonne journée Ayush

Volunteers run the world.
That's a new one on me.

In a way, owning a mill, is like owning a big sail boat.

These are the fun pictures, Ayush. I often have seen the miller go up to set the sail, amazing how strong these sails are.
Now that would be a job!
See you when we see you!
