Pelican of London

Pelican of London

Formerly an Arctic fishing trawler and then a coastal trading vessel, Pelican of London was transformed in to a sail training ship in 2007.

She is unique among square riggers in that her sleek hull form comes from the speedy greyhound clippers of the 19th century, giving her a real turn of speed. A long poop deck was added later.

Meanwhile her barquentine rig and sail plan is derived from the Barbary Coast pirate ships.
