Beautiful 95 foot classic ketch with a impressive history
Halcyon was sailed by her first owner until 1944, but already during the war she was requisitioned and put in service as a flagship for minesweepers in Greece.
In 1957 she was bought by the Warsash School of Navigation in Hampshire and was succesful as a sail training vessel for 32 years.
Throughout her life Halcyon has been involved in a number of adventures. She came unscathed through the storm which hit the notorious 1979 Fastnet race.
Towards the end of 2004 she was taken to Gloucester Docks where she was given an impressive restoration and refit under the auspices of T Nielsen and Company Limited, specialist tall ship repairer and builders.
