Alf R. Bjercke was a renowned person in Norway as a business executive, business investor and politician. He also served as member of many national and international associations and committees, among them also the Norwegian Olympic Committee.

In the mid-fifties he co-chaired on the Board of The Christian Radich Foundation in Oslo. In that position he became instrumental in the negotiation with Louis de Rochemont II in using the S/S Christian Radich as the windjammer in the Cinemiracle production.

Alf R. Bjercke did not only succeed getting the signature contracting the ship for the voyage, he also acted as the liason throughout the entire voyage, between the ship and the foundationís HQ in Oslo.

S/S Christian Radich is a square-rigged sailing ship traditionally acting as a prep school for young boys before entering the Norwegian merchant marine. To day the ship is charted half of the year by the Royal Norwegian Navy to develop character, courage and integrity among their young soldiers before they enter modern high-tech navy ships.
