No that's the Johanna Lucretia the Dutch schooner i think, that's been moored in the docks for years! This one is kept at Bristol marina near to the SS Great Britain and is used for corporate events, films and trips around Bristol

As there are no sails up, and she's not under tow, do you know what they were using for power? I was wondering if, when they did the transatlantic crossing in 1997, they relied solely on sail power.

What a cracker of a shot. Very well done all around
