The Danish galease Anne Magrethe has returned to Ring Andersen’s yard at Svendborg, southern Denmark, where she was built in 1912. To celebrate her 100th year she is to have a major refit. This ketch may be remembered when she was the Fri and visited British ports in her protest voyages. She took part in the Mururoa A-bomb protest in the Pacific in 1973 when the French Navy detained her.
The only Danish traditional vessel still under sail only is the galease Anna Moller owned by the Danish National Maritime Museum. In the summer she is sailed with volunteers. The barquentine Thalassa seems to make voyages to the west coast of Scotland most summers and in the winter returns to Harlingen, Friesland in North Holland. This barquentine was built at Harlingen in 1980 and was bought by Arnold Hilkema and Jacob Dan after she sank in 1985 and has since had a major refurbishment.
