Youtube video – the Buckie-built training schooner Captain Scott

Here’s a nice piece of old 8mm film of the training schooner Captain Scott, which was built at the Herd & McKenzie of Buckie, in 1972. At the time of its launch I gather this vessel was the largest of its type in the world. My thanks to Andrew Johnston for pointing it out to me.

I’m sorry but I can’t highlight this post with an image of the sailing ship herself – the owner of the film has forbidden it from being ’embedded’.

PS – There are comments in the comments link below about the Captain Scott, which is still sailing the world under a new name.
