Photos: “Roald Amundsen” In St. George’s

March 21, 2016

The Tall Ship Roald Amundsen recently docked in the east end, and according to online marine trackers, the German-flagged vessel sailed in after traveling from Havana, Cuba.

In describing the ship, the Sail Training website says, “The brig Roald Amundsen offers the unique experience of sailing on a traditional Tall Ship. Our ship sails all the year round: we enjoy the the Baltic and North Sea in the summer months and explore the Atlantic Canary Islands and Mediterranean in the winter.”

.

“At the heart of the voyage lies the experience of the whole crew sailing our ship together in accordance with traditional seamanship. On the first day of your voyage the regular crew will show the new trainees how our ship works and sails – sailing experience is thus not necessary.

“All the jobs on board, whether in the rigging or on deck, are undertaken together instructed by the experienced watch leaders and deck hands.”
