#TallShips – This Thursday the tallship Dar Mlodziezy, a fully rigged A class sail-training vessel of the Gdynia Maritime University (a state run Maritime academy) is due to visit Dublin Port for two days, writes Jehan Ashmore.

An English translation of her name means "The Gift of Youth" which is appropriate given that the ship built in 1982 at the Polish city of Gdansk on the Baltic Sea, was completed with funding partly financed by the gifts of young school-children.

Designed by Zygmunt Choren, she is specifically constructed to train cadets of the Polish marine and she has taken part in The Tall Ship Races over the years.
Some of her main specifications are detailed as follows: Length: 110.6 m Beam: 14 m Draught: 6.6m Height of tallest mast 62.1 m Sails: 3.015 sq m Top speed under sail: 17.8 kt and she has a displacement of 2946 tons.

She has a crew of 40 and where cadets that number up to 136 personnel are trained in seamanship skills. Should there be no wind, she is fitted 2 x 750 hp Cegielski-Sulzer engines which generate more than 12 knots.

Given the current spate of strong winds, this however should not pose an issue!
