Tall Ships Festival 2017 (1)
Keith and I spent a day at the Tall Ships festival this week. Our first stop was at The Royal Arsenal at Woolwich where a number of visiting ships were berthed.
Tolkien was built as a diesel powered tug operating out of Rostock. In 1995 she was in Rotterdam when the company who owned her went bankrupt. She was bought by a private individual who removed her diesel engines and converted her into a top-sail schooner. She operates cruises in the Baltic and the North Sea
When the ships leave Greenwich on Sunday, they will sail to Portugal before crossing the Atlantic to Canada.
