Tall Ships



About This Category

Tall ships (ie largely wooden boats with sails and rigging!) and associated material. This collection exists largely thanks to Bruno (BG), since I remain unable to tell a sloop from a tug.

See also Recreation.

You might like to visit: Pablo Avanzini's Tall Ships Blog, Gauthier Marines of St Malo, Max's web site (professional tall ship photography), and Traditional Boats and Tall Ships magazine.

Bruno also recommends some links for people who want to go sailing:

(AKA "vieux gréements" or "grands voiliers" in French, and "tallship" or "tallships" in English.)

  • barque = OED: vessel with aftermost mast fore-and-aft rigged and remaining (usually two) masts square-rigged.

Thumbnailbarque Alexander von Humbolt BG.jpg (Tall Ships)

The Alexander von Humbolt is also known as the Becks ship. This is because one of its main operators is the German brewery Becks that uses the ship as a sailing advert, thanks to its unique green sails.
