The Norwegian tall ship, Christian Radich, one year short of its 80th anniversary, made a fine sight in Cork city last night.
The 1937 built ship is berthed at the North Custom House Quay. As Afloat.ie previously reported, the visit to Cork Harbour is private and will run beyond the weekend to at least mid-week. This it to facilitate trainees who are to attend a maritime course.
Christian Radich is one of two of Norway’s most famous large tallships, the other ship been Statsraad Lehmkuhl dating to 1914.
The square-rigger in August made a visit to Dublin as part of National Heritage Week.
