The Golden Hinde
SAILS from London
15th August, 2003
Going under Tower Bridge at about 4:30pm.

I'll be there to take a few photos.
It's not often this event occurs.

Yes - it's going to the Southampton Boat Show.

Hope they put the masts back up in time - when I looked last week there was a Meccano kit of oak and rope all over the dock.

But they need to remove the masts to get under London Bridge!

I spoke to the crew yesterday evening... She is leaving the dock at 4.30 AM on Friday - not PM as the original posting suggested - as they're dependent on tides etc

She will head for one of the basins (Kings?) in the Docklands for a couple of weeks more preparation work before setting sail for Southampton. Depending on wind and weather the journey should take about 3 days.

The last time she sailed was just over 6 years ago.

I may set the alarm and take a stroll up there anyway...

Cheers Curly, I would have missed the event.
I was going to come home early tomorrow as the
Livesights email said 4:30pm, but just checked the Livesights
webpage and they now have 4:45am.
Although I wouldn't be surprised if the 4:45am was revised again
due to last minute hitches.

Well, it's on the move. Took these at 6pm.
Should be at Tower about 7pm if they're lucky

Great photos! Especially the ones with the afternoon sun shining on her bow...
