Georg Stage is a Danish iron-hulled, fully rigged, three-masted sailing ship launched in 1934. The ship serves as a training-platform for sailors in Denmark and is owned and operated by the independent foundation Georg Stages Minde (in memory of Georg Stage). The foundation was instituted in 1882 by the shipowner Frederik Stage and his wife Thea, recognizing the need for better training and qualification of sailors at their time. The ship was named after their son, whom died from tuberculosis in 1880, aged 22
