During the Tall Ships Festival in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, all the ships flew as many flags as possible. This was the Tarangini, a three-masted barque of the Indian Navy,commissioned in 1997 as a sail training ship for naval cadets. She was constructed in Goa and launched on 1 December 1995.
On this voyage she left India on Jan.10,2007, and participated in several festivals along the Canadian and USA east coasts. She returned to port in October 2007, having traveled 22,000 nautical miles (41,000 kilometers).

    teehee.. room for one more… feel like running away to sea as we speak..LOL.. tho wouldnt fancy scampering up that rigging tho..

  • lol! Me neither, though I did it in my younger (and waaay more foolish) days.Going to sea still has it’s appeal though. I still have my 22’ boat and it gets me out fairly often :))
