Polish Tallship With ‘Floating’ Sea Shanty Choir Visits Dublin ‘Docklands’

August 8, 2023

A Polish flagged tallship which arrived into Dublin Port yesterday evening had also its own Sea Shanty choir on board, writes Jehan Ashmore.

The sail training ship, STS Kapitan Borchardt of the Polish Scouting Association once a year, brings the floating choir members of the Zawisza Czarny on a voyages to perform concerts in ports and to celebrate their home port of Gdynia.

The vessel built in 1918 is the oldest sailing ship currently flying the Polish Flag which last month took part in the Tall Ship Races with a call to the UK host port of Hartlepool, an English North Sea port.
