Sailing Ships next, This was the first planned part of the display, involving a walk through with the British Ships on one side and the Franco Spanish ships on the other side. It was intended to draw the public into the display in a pre-determined direction and it seemed to work..
We actually ran out of room to put up all the sailing ships, resulting in the 9' Redoutable staying in the trailer for the weekend and HMS Dolphin being hijacked by the ego maniac on the movie models display.
The display narrowed down to our fund raising table, manned throughout the weekend, and raising almost pounds for the team..
The Merchantman/Pirate ship Jessica Marie.
The Phoenix, almost risen..
HMS Ajax, which, due to tax reasons, was the Royal George this weekend.
USS Chesapeake, which this weekend was being French...
And finally, HMS Victory, which was being too big to go up in the lift and proved stuffing heavy for four of us to carry up the stairs..
