Nameplate of barquentine Shabab Oman Posted by Hello

I took this photograph of the nameplate of barquentine Shabab Oman while in Bergen during the Cutty Sark Tall Ship Races in 2001. This photo was used in the April 2004 issue of the Postgraduate Medical Journal. You can find the original version of this picture at DHD Multimedia Gallery.

As mentionned in the gallery, Shabab Oman means Youth of Oman. She is a superb barquentine that is used by the Sultanate of Oman as an ambassador to other sailing nations. Under sail, she is definitely one of the most beautiful ships I have ever seen and regularly takes part in international sailing events.
