Photographer's Note

A rig study.

The bark Rickmer Rickmers arrived in Hamburg in 1983 and her appearance was the highlight on the 794th birthday celebrations of Hamburg harbor, held every year around the 7th May.
It was bought from the association "Tallships for Hamburg" and restored to remember the history of Hamburg as a "Navy"-Town.

Nowadays the ship itself is primarily a museum, but it is also possible to visit the ship‘s restaurant on the second deck.

Length overall: 97.0 meters
Width : 12.2meters
Depth 6.0 meters (from water-level)
Sails 3.500.0 sq. meters (at the time when she was sailing)

No postprocessing.
