This 111 meter long tall ship from Indonesia docked at the deep port in Phuket. An invitation via the local press was given to members of the public to come and visit it, and so I did.
It was in Phuket as part of the 2019 Nation Ambassador Sail (NAS), an annual program of the Indonesian Navy to strengthen Indonesia’s commitment to regional security, peace and stability. The theme for this year’s program is “Maritime Fulcrum Brotherhood”.
It was a real treat fro anyone not having got close to one of these magnificent Ships.
