Kathleen & May - Britain's Last Three Masted Top Sail Schooner

Photographs  John H. Luxton 2009

The KATHLEEN & MAY is the last three masted top sail schooner still trading in the British Isles. Her importance reflects her membership of the Core Collection on the National Historic Vessels Register.

This finely restored Irish Sea  vessel which was built at Connah's Quay is a regular visitor to British west coast and Irish Ports. In 2008 she delivered one of the first cargos under sail for many years when wine was shipped from Bordeaux to Dublin. She is due to ship wine again this summer from Bordeaux to Dublin and Bristol. - Visit the Friend's web site for more details. [CLICK HERE]
