Almost 100 visitors from across Europe arrived in St George’s yesterday aboard a historic tall ship from Norway.

The

Christian Radich is a three-masted vessel built in 1937, named after a Norwegian shipowner.

It was originally used for training sailors for the Norwegian merchant navy, and has been on the charter market since 1999, as well as sailing with paying trainees to foreign ports.

Trygge Wist is one of the 95 people on a sailing vacation aboard the

Christian Radich. The vessel has visited Tenerife and various Caribbean destinations since the trip began in November.

“We are paying to work our way across the Atlantic,” explained Mr Wist, who lives near Stavanger in Norway.

“There are 95 of us with the crew from all over Norway. There are also people from Sweden, Austria, Turkey and Cyprus. Bermuda is wonderful, although there is no sunshine.”

The ship departs on Wednesday, and the passengers spent yesterday exploring the Island via rental scooter.
