’ We are sailing ’ Rod Stewart’s lovely song, unfortunately not in British waters anymore !
The replica eighteenth century frigate ’ Grand Turk ’ based at Whitby in Yorkshire is sadly no more ! She was sold to a French company Etoile Marine in March 2012 and re-named ’ L’Etoile du Roy ’ ( the King’s Star.) Nelson will turn in his grave. She will be based at St. Malo, in north west France on the Normandy coast.
The photograph was taken in Barrow-in-Furness in June 2007 while we were attending the launching of the nuclear submarine ’ Astute.’
