The two photos show this sailing ship preparing for sea. I took the photo in either Molmo or Gothenborg in the mid 70's. Can any member identify it for me as I am unable to read her name on the bow.

Thanks

Blair,

Dicamus just posted a picture in the gallery of the "Christian Radich".
It certainly is the ship you are looking for.
I still have a b/w photo too, in case you are interested.

Thanks for the info. There is a name on the bow but could not read it. They are great looking ships.

Ahoy,

Just for all those sailing ship lovers, I found this one at a Russian site, so I couldn't read the source, but if anyone claims it, I apologize for using it.But a great shot of the Christian Radich
