Tall Ships



Built in 1922 in Denmark, the LOA was restored as a barquentine in years 2004-09.

LOA - the largest restoration project of its kind in Denmark for decades - is the result of the enthusiasm of around 100 volunteers and a few good professional craftsmen.

Since the maiden voyage in 2009 LOA has sailed with crew members and trainees from countries like Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, New Zealand, and USA.


The LOA is a 3-masted barquentine operated by the Danish sail training trust, Tall Ship Aalborg Fonden. She sails mostly on the Baltic and in Northern Europe, regularly participating in the Tall Ships Races.


LOA sails with up to 23 trainees and 9 crew members for overnight journeys.
