Contact and legal notice

Tallship-fan is a project with the aim of collecting data, photos, videos and historical facts about sailing ships and to present them to other lovers of sailing ships.

Furthermore you can also identify sailing ships that you have seen or photographed by certain very simple characteristics.

Many friends of sailing ships support this data collection. I am very grateful to everyone for that. Please keep sending hints and information that will help to improve the data of sailing ships, photos, videos and historical facts.
