Taken from my iPad so not too well exposed. Still I caught it.
This looked interesting when it came in. A bit of searching on Google came up with the history.
Have a look at the Frinton & Walton Heritage Trust pages about this boat.
The fishing boat came in during the night – at 5am it was unloading so I had to shut our bedroom window! Never mind, you can’t live on a working port and moan, any more when we lived in a village could you moan about cockerels – smile. Later this afternoon, the regular Dutch artic arrived. I am always amazed at how these guys maneuver the great big things.
We have had a lot of Dutch boats in the Marina recently. It must be a great long weekend to sail across the North Sea to here – a couple of days here – and then sail back again. At one time yesterday, there were 8 Dutch yachts leaving at the same time. This one went today – I thought it a particularly attractive boat.
This Sea Cadet training ship came in this afternoon.
