Age of Sail: Etoile du Roy / Grand Turk / Ghost Ship

So the lovely sail ship I posted about below seems to have the made the Guernsey provincial rag in the guise of a Ghost Ship.

I'm pretty sure it's the Etoile du Roy nee Grand Turk...

Not much happens in Guernsey, so when someone photographs a ship on the sea it's a big thing apparently... Obviously being a small group of islands in one of Europe's busiest sea lanes, this sort of event is rare.

The first time I landed here, five years ago now, I remember the major headline was about a woman falling over in the street. No, seriously.

See my posts below for some pictures and details of our other sailing visitors.
