Tall Ship Kaskelot Visits Plymouth
One of the largest remaining wooden ships in commission, Kaskelot, has called into port at Plymouth this Easter weekend.
The 3 masted barque tall ship, originally built in 1948 to carry supplies to remote coastal settlements in Greenland, has appeared in numerous tv productions and blockbuster films but is now used mainly for charter and commercial work.
Recently refitted, this historic tall ship can be found in Sutton Harbour, right along side the Barbican, and is open to the public from 9am on a daily basis.
With 9500 sq ft of sail area, a beam of 28ft and a length of 153ft, she is quite a sight and well worth a visit.
