Norwegian galeasse LOYAL

Finally, after a bit of "net-surfing" and lots of dead-ends, my friend from Stavanger, NORWAY, and the Sail Training Association of Norway, Anders Bang-Andersen, identified the 2-masted, white hulled vesssel in one of my slides at the galeasse LOYAL from Steinsland, Norway.

Interestingly, the LOYAL was built in 1877 ! She has been recetnly restored to sailing conidition and participated in the 2004 tall ships gatehring in Stavanger. I will try to post an image soon of LOYAL on the webpage.

Anders also forwarded 2 other LINKS that should be of interest:

The Norwegian tall ships webpage:

and finally, the webpage for the neat, maritime museum in stavanger:
