11th October: a Historic sight!

Appearing out of the mist on the morning watch on Friday (11th September) were two Tall Ships, STS Lord Nelson and SV Tenacious. STS Lord Nelson is being decommissioned by the Jubilee Sailing Trust after 33 years service (BBC News article). SV Tenacious will remain in service. Both were passing Calshot Tower and heading towards Southampton. Presumably Lord Nelson was on the way to being laid up with Tenacious marking the occasion.
