Tenacious in Cork

Tenacious in Cork

The sailing vessel, Tenacious, docked in Cork a few weeks back. I spotted the top masts over the buildings of the quayside while we went home so I had to stop!

She’s a beautiful ship and apparently the largest wooden tall ship built in England in the last 100 years! She also has facilities to allow disabled people access to her, even ascending high up among the sails! She was featured on a tv programme last night with footage taken in Cork.

Tenacious was built in Southampton and is owned by Jubilee Sailing Trust a, “charity that aims to promote the integration of people of all physical abilities through the challenge and adventure of tall ship sailing.”

Donal has a great picture of the Tenacious lit by the setting sun.

    Beautiful vessel! I love your images you captured of it. The close up, wide angle of the bottom shot is my favorite!

    Nice shots Donn. Thanks for the link. The first one is the best in my opinion, nice perspective.

    It depends on what the intention of the photo display is, but if it is to promote interest and gain prospective passengers, I feel it totally misses the grade! It would certainly not inspire me to book a holiday. Arrogantly, I feel I could do much better! I want to come on one of your holidays/maintenance periods soon, so maybe I can try to matdnh my assertions!!!
