View of Thalassa passing Canary Wharf
Thalassa is now familiar to me as she was part of the Round the World Clipper Race which took place in 2013 and earlier in 2014. See TQ3877 : View of Thalassa passing Canary Wharf for my photo of her, coincidentally also passing Canary Wharf but further downstream at Maritime Greenwich, at the beginning of the race almost exactly a year ago. Thalassa was initially a trawler, but in 1984 was shipwrecked after running aground on a World War Two wreck and was rescued and transformed into her current glory. Thalassa is named after the Greek god of the sea and is rigged in a traditional style, but equipped with a modern, stylish and luxurious interior. She can sail up to 13 knots and has a total of 14 sails totalling 800 square metres.
