Swedish short documentary from 1936


Recommended Posts

Found this 15 min documentary from 1936. Unfortunately it is in swedish, but the sail handling is general.
I must say, it adds another dimension, seeing the lads running up the rigging (rig-rats, perfectly appropriate term).

And also hoisting the anchor...team-work allover.


The ship in question is af Chapman which was static already then. (servers as a youth hostel since many years).

Najaden and Jarramas, both sail training vessels. 

Najaden is now also static in Halmstad, since many years, and Jarramas is undergoing re-rigging in Karlskrona.
