Iron brigantine built in 1911 by Lühring, Brake/Unterweser. Her future looked pretty sad until her burnt-out hull was bought by a group of enthusiasts in 1973. By then it became adventurous and exciting as she set sails in 1976 for another maiden voyage: a journey from Faversham/U.K. to Australia. Until 2001 she circeled the globe several times, becoming more and more beautiful as the years went by, appeared in several movies. In 2001 her skipper retired and sold the ship to a Danish group. A big refit made sure the old bunch of friends, who loved and supported her through the years, can't affort to sail her anymore. The featured page is to honour the good times we had and is NOT the official ship's website.
