...Tall Ships Grow

Don't forget to pop over to our Monte Carlo-style marina this weekend for a gander at the Grand Turk. Although she's of more recent construction than most of the vehicles you'll see in Margate, she cuts a much more graceful and majestic figure.

Unlike the little Acolers mentioned in the previous post, though, this is one of the many attractions that we subsidise through our council tax. And we still have to pay the ferryman if we want to take a butcher's inside.

Still, I for one will not gripe, as she adds a welcome touch of old style class sitting there among the Sunseekers and Bentley Continentals.

Bit of sad news the Master of the Grand Turk was in the shop and he said that this will probably be the last time we see her, she is up for sale as the owner has gone bust, “Ship of Fools”?

I heard that this might be the last time too. Pity.

Aha! Another opportunity for the Uranians? Maybe they could turn it into a floating art gallery.....

Why won't we see him (surely Grand Turk would be masculine) again if he gets sold?
Is he being sold to Reclamet or, God forbid, Jimmy Goodwin?
