Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

With the Swedish and (I think) Finnish flag at the mast top and Dutch flag on starboard I've been looking for a Swedish tall ship berthed in the Netherlands.

wrong! It is Replica of the Kalmar Nyckel build in Wilmington, Delaware.

Kalmar Nyckel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

but where was she in Sept 2004 when the photo was taken? I am assuming it was date stamped correctly

the dutch flag points me to Holland but possibly this flag was worn due to its heritage (original was Dutch built). My guess is east coast US, perhaps Rhode Island, Vinyard Haven, Cape cod region?

yes I thought she was the Gotheborg, but though there are similarities the figurehead is completely different. I think you will agree we are looking at The Kalmar Nyckel.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

LawrenceU got it! That was a lot faster than i expected, but leaving the date on the photos was deliberate. The Kalmar Nyckel visited Mystic Seaport in that timeframe and is shown at Mystic River Park, by the Route 1 drawbridge in these photos.

BTW, the dutch flag may be there because the original ship was Dutch.



OBTW, I don't think the tender is an historical replica!

I am thinking this will be tough, but I shouldn't underestimate the resourcefulness of sailnetters.
