~SHIPS~DORSET~ Images of the Month for August 2021 ~ 1of2 ~ ~ Golden Horizon ~ Weymouth Bay anchorage 

When she arrived off the Dorset coast in late June, Golden Horizon became the subject of photos, chatter and even national newspaper articles. Having chosen Portland & Weymouth Bay to undertake final preparations before embarking her first ever paying cruise passengers - and as British Coastal cruising becomes the big staycation / seacation of 2021 - its an ideal time to feature two of Ian Haskell’s impressive pictures taken in June.

Tradewind Voyages claim their new-build Golden Horizon is the world’s largest square-rigged sailing vessel. Furthermore, she has been designed as a near replica of the 1913-built "France II". The new steel-hulled five-masted barque rigged tall ship was originally ordered by Star Clippers from the Brodosplit Shipyard in Croatia, but following a dispute was completed by the yard and chartered to Tradewind Voyages. The ship was originally launched in 2017 to commence fitting-out, but will only enter service in 2021.  With a Gross Tonnage of 8,770 … length of 162m and beam of 18.5m … she is capable of carrying up to 330 passengers plus a crew of 140. Her 5 masted rig can deploy 42 sails giving a total sail area of over 6,300 square metres.
