Norwegian School Tallship to Make Return Call to Capital

#TALL SHIP -The Norwegian three-mast school ship Christian Radich is to visit Dublin Port tomorrow as part of a four-day stopover, writes Jehan Ashmore.

The 1937 built tallship will make her main port of call to the capital during a four week sailing programme arranged by Norwegian Navy Officer Candidate School.

She called to Dublin Port last year, as previously reported on Afloat.ie for publicity purposes in advance of this year's successful festival in the capital which was host to the final port of call of the Tall Ships Races. Likewise of the tallships, she is to berth alongside the Liffey at Sir John Rogersons Quay.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
