History of the surviving working sailing vessels

National Historic Ships has this piece today about “Historic Sail: Britain’s Surviving Working Craft”, a paperback book by Paul Brown published in association with National Historic Ships UK.

It includes a concise history of the surviving craft that once worked under sail, including, of course, Thames sailing barges. 

Pity Christmas is over.   This seems like a must have present.
