Annette and Poul Steinert are proud of all the memories from Kurt Carlsen. Poul Steinert’s mother was sister to Kurt Carlsen.
The Carlsen family around 1935: Mother to the left and father Martin to the right was hard working together with the two very young daughters.
In a small Danish island at the South Funen Archipelago a museum about Kurt Carlsen and Flying Enterprise will open in the summer of 2013 an opportunity to relive the drama of the Atlantic in 1951-52. It happens when Øhavets Maritime Museum opens department “Flying Enterprise & Kurt Carlsen”. Maritime Museum is housed in a farmhouse from 1921 – and some other places at Funen and the small Islands. The 240 sqm is totally rebuilt and has a hand-built, 15-meter-long copy between rafters of Newfoundland schooner ‘Fulton’ of Marstal
It was on board ‘Claudia’ from Marstal Kurt Carlsen in 1932 for the first time crossed the Atlantic…. (updated) …..
