Fans of Tall Ships will have been enjoying the sight of TS Royalist and TS Pelican both moored up in Weymouth Harbour, just yards from Aaran Guesthouse. We understand TS Royalist departs tomorrow – judging by the night-time activity, it may be early in the morning. TS Royalist is a 34m steel-hull Brig, launched in December 2014, costing £4.8million. She was built by Astilleros Gondan S.A. of Spain.
