Tall Ships Atlantic Challenge 2009 - Kruzenshtern by 

The tall ship Kruzenshtern from Russia

Homeport: Kalingrad, Russia
Rig: Four-Masted Barque
Sparred Length: 376’
Draft: 19’
Beam: 46’
Hull: Steel

Bermuda was very fortunate to host the third leg of this spectacular race. Unfortunately the weather was very cloudy, but with a little help from Photoshop, I was able to lighten the shots. Hundreds of small crafts accompanied the ships as they left Bermuda.

Info from:

The course of the Tall Ships Atlantic Challenge 2009 circles the North Atlantic Ocean, following the traditional trading route of sailing ships over the centuries taking full advantage of prevailing winds which should provide spectacular racing conditions.
The fleet will gather in Vigo on the northwest corner of Spain (30 April – 3 May) for the start of the first race in the series, 900 nautical miles south-south-west to Tenerife in the Canary Islands (14 – 17 May). From there, the fleet will race the 2,600 nautical miles westward to Bermuda (11 – 15 June) where the ships and crews will be the centrepiece of the island’s celebrations of its 400th anniversary. The fleet will then race to Charleston on the US east coast (25 – 29 June) before proceeding to Boston, Mass (8 – 13 July). A cruise in company of a further 370 miles north-north-east to Halifax (16 – 20 July), where celebrations include the 250th anniversary of the Naval Port, will be followed by a final race starting on Monday 20 July of 2,350 nautical miles eastbound across the North Atlantic to Belfast, Northern Ireland (13 – 16 August) which will host the series’ grand finale celebrations.

Bermuda born so I occasionally get “rock fever” and have to travel – especially to France! Mostly use my Nikon D200, but also use a Sony Cybershot DSC T90 and a Lumix DMC-LX5 for quick shots.

    Wonderful capture. I saw it in Halifax over a week ago. It’s an incredible ship.

  • Thanks Anne – yes it is an amazing ship, but it broke one of its mast after leaving Bermuda. Glad to hear it made it to Halifax. My daughter was also in Halifax then and saw the ships again.

    I hope your daughter had good weather. We had two days of fog and rain, plus two days of sunshine.
