It was a shame not to see her with her sails up. I suppose that today its thought to be too hard to sail such a vessel in the confined spaces of the Pool of London. But of course in its day the sailors would think nothing of it, doing that every day whatever the weather, as I read about in the book "The Mate of the Caprice."
But despite that she looked beautiful, naturally at home in these waters.
They even raised the bridge to let her in - magnificent!
