Poor ‘Nellie’ (as the Jubilee Sailings Trust’s team affectionately call their tall ship STS Lord Nelson) isn’t looking much like this just now… because she’s having a major overhaul in the Port of Southampton. The location is a bit of a comedown from the places she’s been in her last 2 years at sea, like Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town and Sydney: right next to a mountain of scrap metal awaiting export! We went on board to interview two crew members for our JST film: Luis Otero from Uruguay, and ‘Stretch’, from New Zealand, who sold up lock, stock and barrel, to go to sea with the Trust. ‘Nellie’ needs her refit after 2 ‘Sail the World’ years at sea, and she’s certainly getting it, with maintenance teams at work under the leadership of Captain Barbara Campbell. Quite a makeover.
