Zanshin, are you trying to mislead us?


Spot on. The picture site is in Europe, but not the EU. It gets chilly there in winter.

Additional Hint: The same harbour from a different viewpoint and the coat of arms for the city


p.s. PCP: Yes, one can use pictures that aren't one's own, but one should have been there. Pictures should be sailing or at least water related.

Faster, I have even tried to check out all avida Cruises ( the cruise company with the nice hull painting) destinations... Even in the Black Sea! But it seems that I missed some spot.

The ship came up as AIDAblu, but she cruises all over Europe, and the med... wasn't much help.

Guess I give up. The only Nordic countries that have sea and are not EU are Norway, Iceland and Russia and I checked those one

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I have always been interested in Junk Rigs and have recently been reading about the work on cambered panels done by Arne Kverneland and split rigs by Slieve McGalliard.

Arne Kverneland is from Stavanger Norway so, on a whim, I took a look.

Zanshin?
