R Tucker Thompson

Going aloft on the Tucker Thompson


My husband and I spent the day on the Tall Ship R.Tucker Thompson yesterday and it was one of the best days out ever!!

What a fantastic experience, taking us back to a time when life was just a little bit slower! The crew were so friendly and encouraged those feeling fit and strong to help with the setting and lowering of the huge canvas sails. Both Jeff and I thoroughly enjoyed taking the helm too.

They cooked us a wonderful BBQ chicken lunch, took us ashore to a most picturesque but unpronounceable island for some exploring, and for some, a dive off the ship into the amazing blue waters.

I can highly recommend this wonderful ship for a days sailing, not only for your own enjoyment but for the children that will receive the benefit of the Sail Training holidays which the Trust provides.

Here is an excerpt from their web site;

The R. Tucker Thompson is operated by a not-for-profit trust which is a registered charity. All income derived from our tourism sailing activities are used for her maintenance, as well as providing a contribution to help Northland youth access the sail training voyages.
