Bessie Ellen is Britain’s last wooden coasting ketch still under sail. She traded during the final era of sail when these ships were an everyday sight in the small ports and harbours throughout Britain.
Last week, I was lucky enough to sail on her from Fowey to Falmouth, alongside the 32 meters long schooner, “Tres Hombres,” which has been transporting ‘Fair Tade’ goods around the world and coming to port to deliver a barrel of 15 years old, ‘New Dawn’, a fine rum, distilled by Oliver and Oliver and Traded by the New Dawn Traders.
