HISTORY

The sailing ship Gorch Fock I was built in 1933 in Hamburg which was also the home port. The ship was used as sail training ship for cadets. During the second world war the sail training was stopped.

The Gorch Fock I (ex Tovarishch, ex Gorch Fock) is a German three-mast barque, the first of a series built as school ships for the German Reichsmarine in 1933. She was taken as war reparations by the USSR after World War II and renamed Tovarishch. After a short period under the Ukrainian flag in the 1990s and a prolonged stay in British ports due to lack of funds for necessary repairs, the ship was acquired by sponsors and sailed to her original home port of Stralsund, where her original name of Gorch Fock was restored on November 29, 2003. She is a museum ship, and extensive repairs were carried out in 2008. She is now seaworthy again and visited the Port of Belfast from 8 to 12 April, 2009 where the public were allowed to board and view the vessel.

Unfortunately, because present rules for shipping and passenger transport sailing is no more possible. But the ship can be used static moored at a very nice place in the port of Stralsund.

During the summer the ship is open for public visitors every day.

The Federal German government built a replacement training ship, the Gorch Fock II (1958), which is still in service. Click here for Gorch Fock II model
