Story behind the image


Working in the rigging, on the way to Brazil.

The photographer spent 4 months before the mast as deckhand on Bark Europa. This Dutch tall ship is known for its global wandering and most autumns sails from Europe to South America for its Southern Hemisphere summer season in Antarctica.

Barque Europa (Bark Europa) carries 30 sails and in the tropics and light wind zones she can set skysails (6th sail up) and stun'sails (the extra sails on the extending yards).
