I attended the Tall Ships Festival, travelling with TRS from Westminster on 3 days.

My great grandparents were born in Charlton and Shoreditch and my grandfather and his 2 brothers went to Greenwich Royal Hospital School in the 1890s later all joining the RN. Grandfather was at Greenwich for the latter part of his RN service between the wars so Greenwich and the Thames has played an important
part in my family history.

The reason I am emailing is to thank all the crews for the great info imparted during my trips. It really made the wonderful experience of the tall ships extra special. Loved the humour too!! It is nice to know that the history of the river is being kept alive, despite the rise of all those luxury apartments. All taken at a nice steady pace without causing a wash like some of your competitors!

Many thanks,
Beryl Matthews
