      Great capture from that webcam!

                    Not often we see sail ships like that in port anymore.

                    Found some information on wikipedia about her too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earl_o...oke_(tall_ship)

                    Earl of Pembroke is a wooden, three-masted barque, currently used for maritime festivals, charters, charity fund raising, corporate entertaining and film work.
                    Look at her film-list - she has been used in many films!

                      Every now and then I check my AIS to find out if there are anything interesting on its way to Kristiansund.

                      Last Friday I spottet the charter sailingboat ANTIGUA in the ship lane just north-east of Kristiansund, near Hitra. The AIS said they would make a call to Aalesund, so I payed no attention to it.
                      Friday we had bad weather in this area, with heavy rain, hail and strong wind.

                      So in the back of my head a thought started to develop; very often this kind of vessels choose not to sail across Hustadvika and in those cases, kristiansund is a natural place to stop.
                      I did not check my AIS again until noon Saturday, and o'hoi..., there she was, moored at Vågekaia (at the exact same spot as Shtandart, if you remember back to 2009).

                      Well, that was a short background story, and here are my pictures..., taken in heavy rain and cold wind, so cold and wet that for my last pictures of the day, I did not feel my finger when I pressed the shutter.

                        Thank you for checking marine traffic and or being so vigilant on your ships in port!

                        That was an interesting construction.... the stern was something I had not seen so often before. Exotic name as well - a good Caribbean-rooted name.

                          I don't know about the stern design, and if it has something to do with the fact that she was built as a fishing vessel in Yorkshire in 1957. Thanks for the comment :-)
