Photographer's Note

This is the four masted bark Sedov as I discovered her on July 22, 1990, moored alone along a small pier in Pauillac, with my future German companions, all of us fresh from the train station. The mast of the shipp were to tall to go beneath the bridges of Bordeaux and thus had to stop thee, in a small town lost in the vineyards.

At the time, "Sedov" was the largest sailing ship in the world (she has now been superseded by the lattest modern sailing cruiser).

I also post in workshop two other views, one of the bow and the other from the stern.

Technical data (extracted from the shall ships handbook proudced by Tal Ships Friends) :
Gross tonnage : 3,4556 t
Length : 117,5 m
Beam : 14,6 m
Draught : 6,5 m
Mast height : 58 m (above water)
Sails : 4,192 sqm
Engines : 1,160 hp
Crew : 65
Trainees : 164
