Images for this post courtesy of David Plummer.

I received these images a short time ago from my Brother in Law David Plummer who lives in Falmouth, They show the Polish Tall Ship "FRYDERYK CHOPIN" which last week lost both its masts in a storm a hundred miles south west of the Isles of Scilly in the Atlantic.

This vessel had between forty and fifty teenagers aboard on a sail training adventure, I'm sure this is not what they bargained for,Gladly no one has been injured in this accident and the vessel was taken under tow and finally landed at County Wharf in Falmouth at around 10am this morning much to the relief of everyone.

These images show how we can never predict the forces of nature.


  1. Goodness! So glad there were no injuries.

  2. I am very sorry for this ship, I hope you can fix soon

  3. Buongiorno Monts, the power of nature comes unexpectedly, sometimes doing irreparable damage, this time fortunately it was not so, destroyed the masts that can be repaired and saved human lives!
    Have a good day!
