Gorch Fock Sailship

German Tall Sailship Gorch Folck was in Quebec in august 2007. See this wonder of the seas ...
The Gorch Fock is a tall ship of the German Navy (Deutsche Marine).
She is the second ship of that name and a sister ship of that earlier Gorch Fock.
Both ships are named in honor of the German writer Johann Kinau.
He wrote under the pseudonym "Gorch Fock" and died in the battle of the Skagerrak in 1916.
The modern-day Gorch Fock was built in 1958 and has since then undertaken 146 cruises
(as of October 2006), including one tour around the world in 1988.
She is sometimes referred to (unofficially) as the Gorch Fock II to distinguish her
from her older sister ship.
