  1. It’s the anchor.

  2. I loved seeing the Sorlandet in Duluth, MN yesterday (July 27, 2013)!

  3. I love those style ships

  4. Reading the Aubreyad. This video is priceless!

  5. How many ships are there? More than 100?

  6. 08:00 Why would the wind be “dead ahead”? Isn’t it more likely for the wind to be blowing from the sea into the docks where the ship is berthed?

  7. great video, loads of stuff i have always wanted to know but never been able to find out. Sail training in Ireland is negledgable with the Asgard II lost. 🙁

  8. hi there i’m only just beginning to learn about this but i was just wondering… do the staysails at the fore also lift the front ship slightly out of the water? if so, does this reduce drag in the water? sorry if these seem like silly questions but i can’t really figure out the function of them other than increasing surface area. I’m sure there must be 🙂

  9. Plz do one for a smaller ship ( lateen sail in the mizzen, and main and fore inly have 2 sails

  10. All of a sudden I’ve been gettin these non-functioning videos with an “error-please try again later” message. When I Googled the problem I found thousands of others are experiencing this which, COINCIDENTLY, coincides with You Tube’s new Pay-Per-View. I think that You Tube is sabotaging these videos purposely to strongarm people into “Upgrading” to their “Premium” channel. I think this is an attempt to phase out the regular You Tube and phase in a pay only venue. Am I the only one?

  11. Well done video! Do post more! Sailing on a big square rigger is on my bucket list!

  12. Theres nothing more enjoyable than backsplicing a real Hemp rope which isn’t made of grass that has all the fraying crap hanging off of it.Hemp ropes are the strongest ropes in the world-far superior than nylon and a hellava lot better to work with—like an old pair of good fittin’ shoes—our manufactoring base would soar when Hemp is reintroduced after we send the Banksters to jail-and ending the’ fed’ stranglehold on Amerika.Google-How Iceland brought their economy back-jailing the Bankster

  13. Yar, you’re welcome mate

  14. Today was my lucky day, I went to my local used book shop, and picked up a copy of this book for just $6. I’m looking forward to reading it….Thanks so much for the recommendation.

  15. Hello Jaybelay, the wheel is called the capstan and can be used to haul in the anchor, or any other rope you need to put a lot of force to. I couldn’t post a link to Wikipedia, but search for capstan in google and you will find it.

  16. The autobiography of Ashley Bowen.

  17. With today’s crappy wage rates workers will be plentiful for hard work, EPA standards crushing anything that exhausts CO2, these ships may be making a come back. Only thing left in the way is OSHA which prohibits workers from doing anything, but hey after 200 miles from shore F*** em, set sail.

  18. My best friend recommended that book years ago….he has since passed away, and I had forgotten his recommendation. Thanks for the reminder and taking the time to respond…I will read it.

  19. Have you read ‘Two Years Before the Mast’? It’s a fine account of a voyage round the horn to California and back in 1834-36.

  20. What is that big wheel those people turn at the beginning

  21. any body refer me to any books of “first hand accounts” of sailing pre 1900?

  22. Thanx to the Foundation Sørlandet for making this excellent video available to all landlubbers watching Youtube! I was sailing on the Swedish East-Indiaman replika Götheborg, 3 times, which had a little different handling, so it is most interesting to see how a windjammer is handled in reality. I would like to sail with her some time … cheers!

  23. omg the hull… they killed the hull
    Anger… ):

  24. Sounds to me like “…the crew hauls the halyard”, which makes sense since the next words are “heaving both the yard and the sail.”
    Halyard definition; Line used to hoist and lower a sail or flag.
    Hope this helps.

  25. It seems so out of place to see people in modern clothing doing this stuff so seriously.
