Sea Cloud II in the Caribbean

Discussion in 'Transportation' started by bobhoge, Dec 23, 2005.

  1. We spent a week (Dec 12-19) in the Caribbean aboard the square-rigged sailing barque Sea Cloud II. It was very interesting to watch how they hand-set all of the sails. We were able to go out on a zodiac while the ship was underway to take photos:
    D-100 18-70 @ 34mm:

    The zodiac cut right under the bow of the Sea Cloud. Don't let that outboard stall right here :eek:

    The base of each of the three masts were a maze of lines

    And there were six more spots along the rails by the masts like this
