On our way back to “Concertina” we were invited aboard “Christiania” for coffee and a gam with Bora and Johan Pedersen and their families. They had a very rugged 47 foot Colin Archer double-ended vessel whose massive comfortable structure was quite a contrast to the scale of our much smaller schooner yacht.

The women and children had joined the vessel at a Halifax crew change, and would leave at another crew change in St. John's. Christiania would then cruise Greenland and winter in Iceland.

For more information about "Christiania", see Wooden Boat magazine, May/June 2001.
