Spending a few days in UK waters, the Danish training ship GEORG STAGE arrived today at Greenock Customhouse Quay for a short visit. The ship, which carries up to 63 cadets, was built in 1934 to replace an earlier ship of the same name. A regular participant in the Tall Ships Races, GEORG STAGE is a fully rigged ship, and carries twenty sails. She is 54 metres in length, including the bowsprite, and is operated by the Georg Stage Memorial Foundation.
