The Regina Maris arrives in Horta
Another Dutch schooner arrived in Horta on Saturday afternoon.
Several locals hurried to welcome the newcomer.
Pico (the volcano) was a bit shy though and it decided to hide behind the clouds.
The arrival of the Regina Maris was a real event in the marina. You could literally see people running towards the ship.
And there were some emotional moments…
The ship has been sailing around for a few months with some secondary school children on board.
The Regina Maris has visited Horta many times. We learnt that she will stay in town for a week.
