Deutsche Marine "Gorch Fock" - Alongside Portimão Naval Wharf - 16 February 2014

We had the pleasure this afternoon of visiting the "Tall Ship" of the Deutsche Marine "Gorch Fock", moored along side the Portuguese navy quay in Portimão.

More on this history of the vessel here (Wikipedia):

 A few days ago I had the pleasure seeing her of Praia da Rocha in the company of another "Tall Ship", a scene that cannot have been seen in Lagos Bay for decades.

These vessels are amazing and allow for the continuance of training of real seamen and women who know the sea in all its tempers.

Some photos here (more to come):
