Rob Powell News, Tall Ships Leave a Comment

Dutch clipper ship Stad Amsterdam left London after spending the summer Bank Holiday weekend in the capital.

The three masted vessel sailed up the Thames last week and moored in West India Docks.

Launched in 2000, the 76-metre long tall ship has been a regular visitor to London over recent years.

She departed London yesterday at midday bound for Hamburg.
