The Stavros S Niarchos, Roath Dock - Cardiff
A bow on view of the vessel which is a square rigged brig of 493 tons carrying 18 sails on two masts of 45 metres. Although having all the appearances of being an old ship she was in fact completed as recently as 2001. She has all modern conveniences to ensure the safety of her crew and ease of sailing including 2 engines, all necessary navigational equipment and even a bow thruster to assist when docking the ship. Capable of 13 knots under full sail she has a crew of 67, 6 of whom are full time members the others comprising 48 trainees, 11 volunteers and 2 supernumerary crew. As testament to her modernity there is 50 times more computer power on board than than the Apollo 10 space craft had!
