1909 schooner Vega

1909 schooner Vega

We came across this beautiful sailing vessel while walking along a boulevard of lovely Art Nouveau architecture. The boat's name was the Vega, and a sign said it could be hired out. It was missing from its berth the next day. Lucky people!


I believe I've found some information this boat, built in 1909: http://skonarenvega.se/GB/Gb.html
