The Matthew is back in town

The Matthew is back in town

The amazing Matthew is sailing into Ramsgate Harbour tomorrow on 23rd March according to their 'latest news' page on their website - it's a pretty spectacular sight moored at The Harbour.  We popped down to take a look on deck last friday before it sailed up The Thames for the weekend.  The boat is in 'fancy dress' at the moment as a dragon, to promote the latest Narnia film, Voyage of The Dawn Treader which has just come out on DVD.  

It's a very impressive replica of the original Matthew, a Tudor merchant ship sailed by John Cabot on his famous voyage of 1497.  So if you get the chance, go down to the Harbour to admire this unusual boat this Friday. The Matthew is normally based in Bristol Harbour.
