The sailing ship was rebuilt into a three-masted schooner in 1980, and thus the former lightship became Denmark's largest sailing wooden ship - and of course this ship has a great attraction for a photographer who has sailed around many of the large seas from the Faroe Islands, around Africa and all the way to Australia.
The beautiful wooden ship has crossed the Atlantic several times, as well as participated in the Tallships Race and not least - sailed all the Danish waters thin.
