BOAT FRIDAY BONUS
When visiting a place like Whitby one can't avoid getting some shots for Boat Friday and here are two boats for the price of one.
P264 called in to Whitby for an overnight stay and is seen here about to tie up at the dockside.
HMS Archer (P264) is the lead ship of the Archer-class. As the lead ship she was one of the few of her class to be completed (in 1985) by Watercraft Marine, the original shipbuilders - most of the remaining vessels were completed or built by Vosper Thornycroft. She is attached to Aberdeen Universities' Royal Naval Unit (URNU) and based in Aberdeen Harbour. As such, Archer is the most northerly home ported Royal Navy ship.
The old looking ship tied up is an authentic scaled replica of HMS Endeavour, which was sailed by Captain James Cook during his scientific expedition of 1768, and has been traditionally built by Whitby craftsmen and stands in the water some 40% of the original ships size. You can join the ship and crew on one of the regular sailings throughout the year and it will take you on a voyage around Whitby Harbour, overlooked by Whitby Abbey and along the coast to Sandsend, where you can follow in the path of Captain James Cook himself and relive his life at sea.
