The Dutch sail training ship, Tecla, arrived at Kirkwall last Friday and should now be on her way to Ullapool and Oban, if good weather has set in. This vessel was built in 1915 for fishing, carried cargo and now gives people the opportunity to learn the ropes. For the past few years she has circumnavigated the globe and later this year will be back in these waters to visit St Kilda. Read more about this tall ship in The Orcadian.
