Tecla - Tall Ships Race Dublin 2012

This two-mast vessel was launched as the `Graaf van Limburg Stirum` and put into service for herring fishing. In 1925 the logger was taken out of commission In 1935 the vessel was sold to a Dane and renamed Tecla. A motor was built in and until 1978 the small coaster was transporting freight like grain, stones and fertilizer between different Danish islands. Meanwhile the ship has returned to the Netherlands and a considerable renovation gave it a new purpose as a sailing charter ship at sea.
