I saw Robin Knox-Johnston's famous boat, Suhaili, in the flesh many years ago at the Royal Maritime Museum, Greenwich, London. It was proudly displayed, encased in a faux-sea. Since then, it has been on the move. I thought it had been relocated to the sister museum in St Ives, Cornwall but apparently no more.
Blogger, Max Taylor stumbled on her while poking around his local boatyard. It's amazing that this national treasure is up on stands amongst the other boats hauled out for the winter. She is looking a lot nicer than my boat right now so it's good to see that she is being taken care of.
Anyone know what she's doing here?
And make a note in your calendar that April 22nd is the 40th anniversary of the Robin Knox-Johnston's circumnavigation. Please celebrate!
