Tall Ship – Soren Larson

Sails, ropes and timber

Built in 1948, The Soren Larsen is one of the most magnificently restored and adapted Tallships still sailing worldwide and is one of the most illustrious wooden vessels of her type in the world.In 1987 she was Invited to be the Flagship for the Australian Bicentenary re-enactment voyage of the First Fleet, and she led a fleet of eight Tallships on a 22,000 mile voyage from England to Australia via Rio de Janerio and Cape Town, arriving to a tumultuous welcome in Sydney in January 1988.In 1992, she won her class in the Transatlantic Tallship Race via New York and Liverpool during the Columbus Grand Regatta… a fitting way to complete the ship's first circumnavigation.
In 2011 Soren Larsen relocated her base of operations to Sydney, Australia, doing charters and daysails on Sydney Harbour over the summer months and voyaging through the South Pacific. As you see, we soaked up the spring sunshine on the harbour this weekend ….
