Taken at Port Adelaide, South Australia, where two beautiful sailing ships are in port for a short time – One and All and HMB Endeavour.
The One and All is a tall ship based in Adelaide and is used for sail training, offering courses and voyages that last from between a few hours to many weeks. Launched in 1985, she took part in the First Fleet re-enactment as part of Australia’s bicentenary celebrations, traveling from Rio de Janeiro back to Australia.
The Australian-built replica of James Cook’s HMB Endeavour is one of the world’s most accurate maritime reproductions. The B stands for Bark. In the 18th century, ships were classified by their hull shape – a ship with a flat bow and square stern was called a bark. If the ship didn’t fit any category and its captain’s rank was lieutenant, this ship was also classified a bark. Captain Cook himself mostly referred to the original ship as “His Britannick Majesty’s Bark”.
In the background can be seen the new “Diver” Derrick bridge, named for Port Adelaide World War II hero, Tom ‘Diver’ Derrick VC, DCM, opened in 2008.
