Peder Tordenskjold - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1213 words)
After further voyages, this time to the East Indies, Wessel was, on the July 7, 1711, appointed 2nd lieutenant in the Royal Danish Navy and shortly afterwards became the captain of a 4-gun sloop Ormen (The Serpent), in which he cruised about the Swedish coast picking up useful information about the enemy.
The Royal Danish Navy has named several ships after him, including an early 20th Century coastal battleship, and the Niels Juel class corvette KDM Peter Tordenskiold (F356).
The Royal Norwegian Navy has also named ships after him and the Norwegian naval training establishment in Bergen is named KNM Tordenskjold.
Serving the King, On the Danish Royal Yacht DANNEBROG "I" (2755 words)
Unlike earlier Danish royal yachts, which were relatively small vessels intended either for harbor or local cruising service or as, e.g., ceremonial barges which were primarily oared vessels, the DANNEBROG I was capable of ocean-going cruises of limited duration, to nearby nations such as the Scandinavian countries or England.
Danish royal yachts varied in type and size, some being no more than ceremonial harbor barges, while others were specifically designated as "pleasure yachts." However, none of Denmark's royal yachts during the sailing ship era seems to have been large enough for long-range, open-ocean cruising, far from Copenhagen's harbor.
These royal yachts, during the age of sail, were typically designed and built by the Danish navy's chief naval architect, and most of them were constructed in the Danish navy's principal dockyard in Copenhagen.
