Schooner sailing: Ipswich to London, September 2021

Schooner Trinovante leaving Ipswich to head down the Orwell, as Lucy joins for her first ever leg without Stephen
Heading into a beautiful day
You can see all the shadows of the sails we have set in this picture!
Another gorgeous sunset on the river Blackwater
The view back from the bowsprit
Wind’s getting up nicely so we are heeling as John steers us along
Passing Southend Pier
Being spoiled with the weather, we are treated to another beautiful sunset
More fun on the bowsprit end!
Coming up the Thames Estuary, we ask permission to pass through the Thames Barrier
Passing through the Thames Barrier
The London skyline on a lovely sunny afternoon
The O2, where Stephen and I walked over the top
Passing the Cutty Sark at Greenwich
Tower Bridge and The Shard coming into view
Safely moored – what a fantastic view!
The lights of London after one last sunset
Farewell to Trinovante – see you again we hope!
