Danish sail training ship Georg Stage "racing" with a container ship in Øresund

The full rigged Danish training ship Georg Stage was late this afternoon sailing northwards in the Sound. The ship, which is said to be the smallest full rigger in the world (54 m x 8,4 m), was on its way to Isefjorden. (Due to the prevailing athmospheric circmustances, it was not possible to shoot fully sharp pictures).

Close to Helsingør George Stage overtook the container ship Vohburg, which was on its way to Teesport. However, the "race" ended with the Vohburg retaking the "lead" just before Kronborg  Castle.
