Frigging in the Rigging Topsail Schooner in Ramsgate Harbour

Any of you wishing to see the good ship Oosterschelde need to get down to the harbour fairly promptly. Their website is at http://www.oosterschelde.nl/welkom-op-de-website-van-driemastschoener-Oosterschelde.html

At some time before I was a shop assistant I worked on this type of vessel in Ramsgate Harbour here are the pictures of her there, in about 1972 I think http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/history/id12.htm     

Pictures of The Oosterschelde taken this morning at http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/511/ .


  1. what a shame we don't get the race of the classics any more, i seem to remember that she was moored on the York street steps a few years back ,the Endeavour and ships of that Ilk don't seem to visit anymore.

  2. I saw the ship in the harbour from some distance but made the mistake of doing a bit of shopping before going to take some pics. By the time I got down there it ship was just leaving. I got a few snaps, though from a distance.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
