Not so tall ship July 20

Kruzenshtern put on a good show despite having lost her fore topmast in a storm between Bermuda and Charleston. She was forced to withdraw from the race portion of the Tall Ships 2009 event. Even though her back stay parted, she was able to partially re-rig.

Her stump foremast certainly looks odd, but she is an impressive ship nonetheless.
