Sailing school ship arrives in Bermuda

Tall ships always make a striking sight, but a special vessel has called on the island: the Dutch training ship, the Gulden Leeuw.

Billed as one of the world's largest three-mast-topsail schooners, the 230ft ship, built in 1937 and remade in 2010, is described as a classroom of the waves.

The ship travelled here from the Dominican Republic and is scheduled to sail from Hamilton this Friday, for Lunenberg in Nova Scotia.
