Underway, but she didn't travel very far. Geoff Hale caught her on film moving from her berth on Princes Wharf to a vacant berth further down the dock - the move necessary as her usual berth was required for the Bristol Harbour Festival taking place 26th - 28th July.
The short film footage can be seen by clicking the following link: http://youtu.be/K_FG9Xja9ls. The sailing ship that appears in the film, is the IRENE, she was the last sailing vessel trading on the Bristol Channel - right up until 1960. The story of Irene (mainly from 1960 to the present) can be found HERE.
UPDATE: if you want to watch the return trip made on Tuesday 30th July, follow this link: http://youtu.be/Th9fgc-tbgs
