Square-rigger in the Thames estuary: TS 'Royalist'
Square-rigger in the Thames estuary: TS 'Royalist'
The training ship was heading up river, bound for Greenwich, after taking part in the 2014 Tall Ships Race (from Falmouth to the Isle of Wight). She is seen here shortly after passing Mucking No. 3 marker buoy. Photo taken from Lower Hope Point - at a range of about 900m from the ship. (see:LinkExternal link )

A comment on weather and visibility: south of the river and further inland the sun had started to come through strongly by lunch-time, but conditions over the Thames Estuary were dull and slightly misty when I reached Cliffe at about 1.30. Grey cloud seemed to persist over south Essex all afternoon, at times threatening rain over the North Kent marshes. The wind was a light easterly - or perhaps ENE.
