Festival of Sail - San Francisco - 2008 : What a great opportunity it was, to see these ships under full sail - something you don't get to see at dockside.  They were magnificent!  Most of these photos were taken in July of 2008, and the Privateer "Lynx" deck photos were taken earlier in April, when I was able to come aboard and see her up close.  (There are a  few other nautical photos from the SF Bay area at the end of the gallery.

Bristol: SS Great Britain, 2012 : 43 photos of Brunel's revolutionary steamship, the first built of iron and the first powered by a propellor. When launched at Bristol in 1843 she was the biggest ship in the world. She was designed for the North Atlantic, but spent most of her career on the Australia run. In 1886 storm damage forced her into Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands, and there she remained as a hulk until 1970 when she was returned to Bristol.  There are also photos of other historic Bristol ships, including the replica of Matthew in which John Cabot discovered Newfoundland in 1497.

Waverley and other paddle steamers : 35 photos of the world's last sea-going paddle steamer, and eleven of her consorts and other paddlers.  Waverley was built in Glasgow in 1947, and sailed on the Clyde until withdrawn in 1973.  She was bought - for just £1.00! - by the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society, who continue to own her.  Waverley was extensively rebuilt in two stages in 2000 and 2003, and today cruises around the British coast in the summer season.

Liverpool: Battle of the Atlantic victory commemoration, 2013 : 20 photos of ships which visited Liverpool in May 2013 to commemorate victory in the Battle of the Atlantic.  In May 1943, the Germans had been forced to withdraw their U-boats from the Atlantic after suffering unsustainable losses. The battle was fought between merchant ships bringing supplies to Britain and their naval escorts, and German ships, aircraft and, above all, submarines trying to sink them.  It was the longest campaign of World War 2, starting the day after war broke out on 3 September 1939 when the liner Athenia was torpedoed without warning, and continuing almost until the German surrender on 8 May 1945. Some 2300 merchant ships were sunk, most by U-boats, with the loss of about 30,000 lives. Many Royal Navy sailors and Royal Air Force airmen, and their Allies, especially Canadian, also died, as did 20,000 U-boat crewmen.
