Germania Nova Sailing in Newport
August 7, 2013
Another unique yacht sails into Newport, RI! Last weekend, our 12 Meter guests got the added bonus of sailing along side the Tall Ship Germania Nova.
The Germania Nova
is a replica of an early 20th century German schooner. The original schooner was built in 1908 and was immediately a world-class racer and won Cowes Week in 1908, setting a new course record. The replica, was built in 2011 and is 196 feet long and has the exact lines of the original schooner.
Check out these great photos Captain Duncan shot as Heritage was sailing along side the speedy schooner. There’s always an interested yacht or two on the water in Newport!
