ah ah I immediately recognized the uniform when I saw the spanish athletes at the opening ceremony.
I must say I don't think it's awful, I like it actually

Prince Albert carried the torch for a segment of the torch relay during the afternoon prior to that evening's Opening Ceremony here in Sydney.
It went down a treat.

(For locals, from memory he did a run in the Coogee/Clovelly area)

Here is a BT article with a few pics of some of the yachts moored near Dannebrog.
These yachts however are owned by the super-rich!

Besides these mastodonts, Dannebrog is a mere barge with her 78 meters length.

But she is much more beautiful, with the pure lines of a true ship, instead of the grotesque looking mini cruiseships.

Vanvittige både på Themsen: Se kongeskibets rige naboer - Royale | www.bt.dk
The picture on top of the article show a yacht called Octopus, owned by Paul Allen and it is 123 meters long.

The next picture is of Dannebrog and she is 78 meters long and ten meters wide.

The thrid picture is again of Octopus.

The bottom picture is of Eclipse, owned by Roman Abramovich and it is 170 meters long and the largest yacht in world.

The article tells us that the security is very tight with no less than 800 security to look after the vessels and the ship Dannebrog. However, as far as I can tell Carlota was able to get pretty close.

Thanks for the photos.
´For me it´s absolutely fine that Prince Frederick ran with the torch. The Olympics are an international event so, why not,,,,,w Besides he is a sportsman and has links with COI.

It was very kind of you Carlota to have made the time during your trip to share these photo's. And they are lovely at that.
