At the end of June, 2007 I was lucky to visit and photograph the largest gathering of tall Ships at Newport, RI since the 1976 Bicentennial. I motored around the harbor in my Boston Whaler. Traffic in the harbor wasn't too heavy the day before the parade of sail. On a cold day like today, the photo makes me think that spring can't be too far off.
Dewaruci is a 58.3 m (191 ft.) steel hulled barkentine sailed as a training ship by the Indonesian Navy. Construction started in 1932 but was delayed by world war II. The vessel was completed and launched in 1953.
