Sail Cartagena de Indias 2014

As a Swiss being from a landlocked country, ships and vessels fascinate me, as per an earlier post. My fascination and love took on new heights this past weekend, as vessels and tall ships representing several countries anchored in the ports of CTG.
Representing Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Venezuela, the Netherlands, USA, Colombia among other countries, replicas and historic ships along with cutters and navy boats/ships were here visiting and for the public accessible!

After watching them arrive last week and then actually seeing them in person, I watched them all sail out today.

Sail CTG 2014 was amazing and living right at the bay offered great views day and night!!

Here are a few pictures from the past few days!

  1. Sailing ships (more than modern ones) have come to fascinate me too. If you’re interested, Stephen Budiansky’s Perilous Fight has LOTS of good descriptions of what life was really like on those ships.
