The sail training ship Christian Radich has been in Torshavn

FMS has had the pleasure of assisting the sail ship Christian Radich will they have been in the Faroe Islands for some days.

Her is some information abut the vessel: Christian Radich was built by Framnæs Mech. Yard in 1937. She was built as a sail training ship: the orlops (dormitories) had capacity for berthing 80-90 students (maximum 80 today after renovation), a large galley for learning to cook, carpentry training, and earlier there was also a machine shop on board (where the galley is now) for the training of engineers. The purpose of the training ship was to train sailors. Sailing-ships were the usual vessels around the turn of the century and that is why the sailing ships continued as a school ship later on.
