128ft Ketch visits Cargreen Quay!

The distant days of commerce on the Tamar returned to Cargreen for a couple of weeks at the end of March with the arrival of the 128ft ketch Irene, one of only two West Country trading ketches still in existence. The preschool children enjoyed a leisurely walk down to visit her, we talked about the differences between old and modern boats and all the jobs Irene has done throughout her life. Another fantastic learning opportunity!
