Photographer's Note

The sequel to yesterday's posting three additional views of Jeanie Johnston, a replica of an emigrants ship of the middle of the 19th century, taken when arriving at the entrance of Dingle Bay:
- side view,
- 3/4,
- rear view.
I have already posted an extract of their web site yersterday (please refer to it) but I am adding now another one with some technical data:
The recreation of the Jeanie Johnston is one of the most ambitious maritime heritage projects undertaken in Ireland.
The Jeanie Johnston is a stunning replica of a 19th century sailing ship, one of the last of its kind before the steam ship era dawned. It was built at Blennerville, near Tralee, Co. Kerry. Building the remarkable wooden tall ship involved a massive and complex undertaking, which began with in-depth research in 1993 and culminated in the completion of the graceful, triple-masted vessel in 2002.
The Jeanie Johnston now operates as a Sail Training vessel, a Famine History Museum and a Corporate Entertainment venue.
The Ships Features:
Length Extreme: 45m (148ft);
Length Overall: 37.5m (123ft);
Beam: 8m (26ft); Draft: 4.2m (14ft);
Displacement: 510 tonnes ;
Rig: 3-masted barque, with 4-square sails/mast, and single topsails.

PS Elements 5.0 (sharpness increased on the original views before redimensionning).
