Re: One More Tallship Sank

A sinking tall ship and you are arguing over date formats? I think I will skip this thread....

Re: One More Tallship Sank

Wonder if there will be any salvage efforts before she drifts into Tallinn shipping lanes if she is on northwest side of Aegna. Or just wait for a freighter or ferry to disperse her in driftwood?

You are quite right Bob. To qualify as a “Tall Ship” the boat must be square rigged on one or more masts. Never mind what Wikipedia says, The Tall Ships register is more authoritative. Evidently a mast doesn’t have to be “tall” either because my main is only 58’ to the waterline, but I still qualify.
Never mind that: looking at those photos is very upsetting to any sailor. She has sailed the seas for over one hundred years, only to finish washed up like a dead whale. I wonder what happened? Anyone got an English version of events? She sure looks worth salvaging.

Remember, there is no such thing as a dumb question . Although on CF we have come very close on more than one occasion.........

Actually one of the things that often catches folks out, especially when travelling abroad is assumptions on what is "Normal".......and that date thing does come as surprise to some folks. IMO perhaps a minor learning event for the loss of a tall ship - but nonetheless could save someone who reads it some problems later on, or simply some aggro...........and am not just talking about folks in the USA, also folks visiting!

You haven't met my apprentice...

Everything I know about stupid questions, I learned from him. Although he has this open, honest expression that goes with his questions.

.
What is the Tall Ships Register, and what makes it the authority? That definition excludes some classic schooners and sloops, and ketches and yawls, and ...

Another definition of Tall Ship I have heard is one having a topmast. But that excludes a lot of great ships too!

Re: One More Tallship Sank

Meanwhile the former captein told that the skipper (age 19)has navigated wrong.
He had ignored the buoyage in the Bight of Tallinn and after crashing with 6kts. on a rock not set anchor. so the boat drifted further 350m
