Photographer's Note

I took this shot from a ferry going to Fjäderholmarna.
Both the ship and the ferry were going rather quickly in opposite directions, so I did not have a very good chance to make several shots. I did, of course, but this is the only one which is not cropped and the whole ship can be seen. It's a pity that its full sails can't be seen, but I guess every ship approaches the Slussen harbour with sails off.

Sea Cloud II

In the grand tradition of the world's finest sailing ships, Sea Cloud II was christened in 2001.

Sister ship of Marjorie Merriweather Post's legendary Sea Cloud, the sailing yacht Sea Cloud II is a three-masted barque steeped in the elegance of yesteryear and complemented with the most modern amenities.

From the mahogany-paneled library and gracious lounge to the fitness area and water-sports platform, no detail has been overlooked.
