Gaff Ketch Jens Krogh

Historic 80-foot Jens Krogh from Denmark was built as a fishing vessel in 1899 and was coverted to a sail training vessel in 1973. She regularly carries sea scouts and other sail trainees on voyages short and long.

Here she is starting a transatlantic race from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Amsterdam as part of Tall Ships 2000.

Two of my children joined her crew for a voyage along the north coast of Spain and the race to England in the 2002 Tall Ships Race.
