      Were you in Trondheim that day as well Svein?

      I was too and also have some pictures sitting around in different albums. I should probably have them scanned and posted once I get home.

        Yepp, me and a long time friend were in Trondheim for Cutty Sark saturday and sunday of that weekend.
        We had our rooms at Rainbow Hotel, and we enjoyed the life and sights in Trondheim those days...

            My first ship. Febr. - May, 1959. She was the last of the large Windjammers to get an engine installed (1960).

                I wasn’t expecting to be looking out the following photos today, but inspired by Sterkoder’s of Christian Radich . . . goodness, what a stimulating place it is here on CV !!


                Here is Christian Radich in Oslo in 2007.


                The next day, May 19, was Fram’s christening. During the ceremony the wind changed and it became quite choppy on the fjord. However conditions improved sufficiently for Christan Radich to make her planned fjord cruise for the Friends of Christian Radich that evening. I had joined the Friends and was made very welcome for this event.





                Shrimps with mayonnaise and bread – I’m in heaven!

                  The unsettled weather somehow gives this image a special atmosphere.









                  Christian Radich moored at Akershusstrand, just along from Fram, after a perfect evening - a fitting prelude to my subsequent adventures on the next leg of Fram’s maiden voyage.

                    Actually 2007 wasn’t the first time I had stepped aboard Christian Radich. She had come to Edinburgh in 2003 to participate in the Festival of the Sea which that year took place in Leith, and specially featured Norway!


                    So here’s a treat for you all – Christian Radich and Sørlandet together!







                    My favourite detail of Christian Radich . . .



                    . . . and I like the turquoise lettering on Sørlandet.


                    Visitors aboard Sørlandet find themselves in an idea position for viewing activities in the harbour, such as demonstrations of life saving and rescue.

                      Christan Radich's cruise around the fijord. Were they able to get any sails up or was the whole cruise motoring? I'm curious how many people it takes to handle the sails, especially on a stormy day.

                          It was just motoring that evening for the shrimp party in the fjord. I think they sail on their major voyages with a total crew of between 15 and 20.

                            I wasn't sure where to put these photos. Fishing boats, historic ships or sailing ships so here they are and can be happily moved.
