Ruth

Moored against the inner quay wall is the sailing vessel Ruth. This twin masted Baltic trader is gaff-rigged on both masts. Ruth was built in Sweden in 1914 and is constructed of pitch pine on an oak frame. Originally her cargo was pottery for Höganäs Keramik but she has operated as a private sailing schooner since the 1960’s.
