28 January - 3 February 2016

Times of Malta presents a selection of its photographers' choice of their best photos over the past days.

The La Grace brig sailed into Grand Harbour on February 1. The Czech vessel is a replica of an 18th century vessel of the same name, which in Czech translates to The Graceful. The original vessel had made several exploratory trips around Europe, the US and the Caribbean and across the Atlantic Ocean. The replica is used solely to teach the art of old-time seamanship.
