The majestic tall ship was spotted on our 24 hour webcam in the Sound has it made its way towards the Barbican.

Plymouth is becoming a major attraction for cruise liners, luxury yachts, and tall ships where the Pelican of London will be open to the public for deck visits. 

The training vessel is owned by the youth development charity Seas Your Future, offering young people sail training, maritime careers, and ocean science voyages for personal and character development.

The charity was founded in 2008 to support the development of young people, building resilience, self-confidence, and independence. The Pelican of London sails for 46-48 weeks each year with up to 35 young trainees, and 12 professional crew and volunteers.

The Pelican of London is the latest arrival and hot under the sails of the huge El Galeón tall ship, a full-size replica of a 17th century Spanish galleon. The vessel is docked at the Barbican Landing Stage – and has extended its stay until Sept 24th September-and become very popular with local people and visitors.
