Back at the Cinemateket, Einar Corwin, Managing Director of the Christian Radich Foundation says a few words before the screening of "Windjammer".
 
 
Special recognition was given to the attending Windjammer cadets who appeared in the film. Several cadets were in the audience this day.
 
 
The screening of "Windjammer". This is the scene with Sven Libaek and Arthur Fiedler conducting the Boston Pops Orchestra.
 
 
After the "Windjammer" screening, we headed down to the Oslo Harbor for a scheduled ride on the Christian Radich. Randy is more than ready with his Christian Radich “hoodie”.
 
 
The Christian Radich. There she is, just like in the picture.
 
 
Jan Halvorsen, cadet #34, also came along for the Christian Radich cruise.
 
 
Permission to come aboard, Captain? Jan Olsen and Randy.
 
 
All aboard.

On the Christian Radich, everywhere you turn, there is another film location. Here is the Captain's table in 1958 (above) and today (below).
 
 
This is the mess hall and dormitory, then and now. Hammock hooks can still be seen protruding from the ceiling beams.
 
 
Still another recognisable film location.
 
 
Tom March is back on the upper deck. Time to ring the dinner bell.
 
 
The dinner special today is delicious hot fish soup and a bread roll. You can't top that!
 
 
In spite of some rain, everyone had a great time. A large tarpaulin that stretched over the lower deck kept us all dry. The cruise on the Christian Radich and the screening of "Windjammer, The Voyage of the Christian Radich" made for a very memorable day.
