What’s all this about the „Gorch Fock“?

Today, the BBC World Service asked me if I could explain what’s behind these reports on the German tallship Gorch Fock. I would have loved to, but they cancelled the interview due to editorial reasons.

So, I did the explaning myself, for those English speaking people who are wondering what the fuss is all about.
