    Visiting us here in Kristiansund today is the British schooner BLUE CLIPPER.
    38 meters long, built in 1999, she sail with the Maybe Sailing in UK and before she arrived in my home town, she came from Rørvik.

      Beautiful shot - the black and white really enhances the vessel too!

          Thank you for these photos Svein, especially the third one. It will be a great reference next time I need to paint ripples in one of my masterpieces :-)

          OHHH.... that is one truly beautiful sailing vessel!

          The shape of the bow, the white hull and the yellow masts and her rigging looks truly stunning!

            Azimut! What a truly outstanding image, a portrait conveying so much in its subtle simplicity.
            It immediately made me think of many an artists' rendering of ships in times gone by, and so brought together past and present in a beguiling timelessness.

                  This is indeed one of the most beautiful sail ships I have seen.

                  The second best is a USCG sail-vessel that I had a giant puzzle of, up at my wall in my childhood room.
