- The "Hiorten" replica was launched in June 1998 at the
Swedish Naval Museum in Karlskrona; after interior fitting
and rigging, the "Hiorten" will operate as a
sailing mail boat on the shipping line service between Rostock
and Karlskrona (joint project between the cities of Karlskrona
and Rostock and their maritime museums); the "Hiorten" is a
synonym for the revival of the traditional art of boatbuilding
and the maintaining of old sailing ships in the Baltic region.
A regatta has been named after her which takes place every year
at the end of July from Karlskrona to Rostock. The ships that
took part in the 2nd Hiorten Regatta in 1998 included the
4-masted bark "Sedov", the bark "Statsraad Lehmkuhl", the
fully-rigged vessel "Khersones", the brig "Roald Amundsen" and
15 other traditional sailing ships; the original post yacht
"Hiorten" was built in 1692 by the master shipbuilder of the
Royal Admiralty, F.J. Sheldon, in the newly founded
"Carls Crona". In May, she docked at Ystad with 15 persons.
From 1692 to 1702 she ship transported post, freight and
passengers between Ystad and Stralsund.
