The 'Kaskelot' in Bangor [1]
Tall ship 'Kaskelot' in Bangor harbour as part of the 'Sea Bangor 2008' festival. Kaskelot (Danish for 'sperm whale'), a three-masted barque, was built in 1948 by J. Ring Andersen for the Royal Greenland Trading Company and brought supplies to remote coastal settlements in East Greenland. During the 1960s, Kaskelot worked as a support vessel for fisheries in the Faroe Islands. She was purchased by 'Square Sail' LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) in 1981 who renovated, redesigned and re-rigged her. She has since been used for filming movies and television programmes (she has appeared in Shackleton, The Last Place on Earth, Cutthroat Island, Swept from the Sea, Return to Treasure Island, The Three Musketeers, Revolution, Longitude and David Copperfield) and is also used for sail training programmes.
