Tall Ship Profile: Royalist

First published in Falmouth Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Regatta 2014

Royalist is a brig measuring 28m long which is owned and operated by the Marine Society and Sea Cadets charity – a national youth organisation sponsored by the Royal Navy.

She was built on the Isle of Wight and launched by Princess Anne in 1971 and since then has taken over 30,000 cadets to sea.

Now over 40-years-old, Royalist is to be replaced by a new ship being built as she is becoming too expensive to maintain.
