Friesland Waterline Model Ship
The Friesland was a part of the Great Fleet of the United Province of Holland. It was built with 80 guns around 1663.and consisted of 1700 units. In 1672 it sided with 77 vessels under De Ruyters command and took part in the battle of Solebay with the Allied Anglo-French forces. The ship whose hull was carved out of wood is particularly noted for the refinements on her poop deck decorations and her superstructure.
Friesland: The Battle of Solebay
The battle of Solebay was a naval battle that took place between Dutch fleet and the Anglo-French fleet. It was the first naval battle of the Third Anglo-Dutch War. A fleet of 77 ships of the United Provinces of Holland, commanded by De Ruyters and others surprised a joint Anglo-French fleet of 93 ships at anchor in Solebay near Southwold in Suffolk on the east coast of England. During the battle the wind shifted and the English gained advantage forcing the Dutch to withdraw around late afternoon.
The battle ended inconclusively as both sides took heavy damage. However, the Anglo-French plans of blocking the Dutch fleet did not come through. Both sides met again in 1673 at the Battle of Schooneveld.
