    will put on blue sails.

    •  The von Humboldt in the Bahamas (excerpts) (0+ / 0-)
      Freeport, Bahamas - Alexander von Humboldt, a German ship originally built in 1906 arrived to her new home in Grand Bahamas Island today (March 15th, 2012). The vessel left Bremerhaven, Germany, on January 14th after serving for 105 years as a sail training ship for the German Sail Training Association.

      ...

      The ship has a new mandate in its new home and that will be to host cruise ship passengers, island visitors and residents on coastal sailing excursions while bringing back the romance of sailing from years gone....

      The green-sailed ship will also serve as a venue for corporate gatherings, receptions and theme parties that can be catered to in the rustic dining room and bar below deck. Coastal cruises will also be offered to the Grand Bahama community on days when cruise ships are not in port.

      ...[A]n additional benefit of having this kind of sail training vessel stationed in Freeport Harbour will be maritime opportunities for young Bahamian men and women. " It is anticipated that this vessel may serve as a training ship once again, but this time in Bahamian waters.

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!
