IPSWICH ORWELL QUAY, 7 Anchor St, Ipswich IP3 0BW, UK

About the event

A Heritage Lottery supported tour of the east coast by our engineless Thames sailing barge ‘Blue Mermaid’, incorporating ten sail-training voyages, the screening of the feature film ‘Wind, Tide & Oar’ free of charge to members of the public in each port, schools’ visits, and the launch of the National Historic Ships Traditional Seafarer Elementary Certificate. We intend that our film-screening tour creates positive publicity for Thames sailing barges, widens public awareness of the heritage of these vessels and helps to boost support of the surviving fleet into the future. There will also be the opportunity in three ports, for primary school children to visit Blue Mermaid to see the skills involved in sailing and maintaining traditional vessels – with a view to inspiring young minds.
