A Tenacious Tall Ship
June 3, 2006
The Tenacious pictured in Cork last week.
I was driving when I spotted the masts over the nearby buildings and luckily I had my camera with me. I wasn't the only one to stop and take pictures, but admittedly the other 2 taking photos looked like tourists.
The Tenacious is one of two tall ships owned by the Jubilee Sailing Trust, the other being Lord Nelson. For more information on the Tenacious see here or go to their site and take a look around. Interestingly, it is 10 years exactly since the Tenacious underwent construction. What sets the Tenacious apart from other tall ships is that she is kitted out to allow disabled crew members carry out the usual activities of a sailing ship. I like the idea of a speaking compass!
