When visiting New York in 1939, she stayed to avoid becoming embroiled in the Second World War. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, the captain offered her as a sail training ship to the United States Coast Guard - more than five thousand cadets learned the ropes on her!

The races are held annually in European waters and consists of two racing legs of several hundred nautical miles, and a "cruise in company" between the legs. Over one half (fifty-percent) of the crew of each ship participating in the races must consist of young people.

After a 3-day festival, it was time to bid farewell to the tall ships.  Thousands of people lined both sides of Dublin port to wave goodbye to the 80 ships. I took my shots from the end of the great south wall, at Poolbag Lighthouse.        This is the Stavros S Niarchos from the UK.  She was built in 2000, and her home port is Portsmouth.   68.04m in length

STA Stavros S Niarchos was commissioned and built by the Sail Training Association in 2000 as one of two new brigs to replace the schooners Malcolm Miller and Sir Winston Churchill, which have taken young people on sail training voyages for over thirty years.

STA Stavros S. Niarchos is the first new tall ship built in Britain for over twelve years and at 59m is the maximum size for a brig, the smallest of the square rigs and will accommodate more young people than the schooners. The brig is named after the Greek businessman and sailor who died in 1996.

Mr Niarchos was first associated with the STA when he loaned his three masted schooner, Creole, to the Royal Navy so that cadets could take part in the first Tall Ships’ Race in 1956 and again in 1958. The Stavros S Niarchos Foundation was formed after his death and made a major contribution towards the build of the new brig in order to continue the work of the STA in the UK.

De Gallant was launched in 1916 under the name Jannetje Margaretha in Vlaardingen. She served as a herring lugger in the North Sea until 1936. In 1982 she was used as a cargo vessel by her Danish owner. Then in 1987 she returned to the Netherlands and was fully restored by a teaching and work experience project for youth in Amsterdam.

She now sails in the North Sea, the Baltic and the English Channel as a sail training ship. She is a regular participant of the Tall Ships Races.

Home Port, Amsterdam, Netherlands.   36.05m
