Stavros S Niarchos - Sail Training Ship


 The Sail Training Ship - Stavros S Niarchos - was open to the public today.

Never one to miss an opportunity I took myself down and was met by Helen who - after going over the safety issues - kindly gave me a tour of the vessel.

Having sailed on the - Sir Winston Churchill - many years ago, it was interesting to see how she compared.

The tour was short but informative and here are some images taken along the way.
