"Georg Stage"
(Denmark)

First a series of pics showing Denmark's "George Stage" as she arrives, - and later departs the city of Kolding.
"Georg Stage" is not only the smallest of the Danish full rigged training ships, but also holds the record of being the smallest full rigger in the World.
(And indeed, - also one of the most beautiful!)
For commercial trade, a simpler schooner rig would be much better for such a small ship, but since she was built as a training ship, the easy handling of a schooner rig with few sails handled by a few crew members  was not the best way of training future sailors, - hence she became a real square rigger with many sails, - and with her many sails she is great for training purposes.

Built:  1934
Dimensions, metres:  Total Length 54,  Beam 8, Draught 4,2
Tonnage:  281 BT
Sails:  20 pcs., - 800 square meters.
Engine: 1 diesel, - 368 Kw
Crew:  11
Trainees:  63

NOTE:
"Georg Stage" did not show off herself with all sails up on this occation, - unfortunately  - - - -
She just left Kolding for a short voyage to the outlet of Kolding Fjord, where she dropped the anchor, and stayed for a few days for further training and exersizes for the trainees before heading out at open water - - -
