Alexander Von Humboldt II

Just got an email from "Afloat" saying that the new Alexander Von Humboldt tall ship is going to be arriving into Cork Harbour on Sunday lunch time.
I'd really love to get down to see her but won't unfortunetly!
I remember being on the original Alex in St. Petersburg about 3 years ago. A really beautiful ship, and a sight to see at full sail, with her green sails!!

Anyone on here done any tall ship sailing?

She's moored in Cobh now. I went down to see her arrive, but she was a bit after the published arrival time so I missed her.
I'll go get a photo in the morning.
