When it comes to diversity at The National Museum of the Royal Navy, the sky is literally the limit…or a last a whole lot of feet closer to it. Ellie Pacey is a full-time rigger with the museum – a vital skill given all the ships NMRN has to look after. De-rigging Victory brought with it special challenges, not least the yard (or more) circumference of one of the main stays, which had to be unpicked from the mast by hand, with Ellie and colleagues suspended on safety ropes, swinging above the main deck of the ship after climbing up and up to their “office” in the sky. As usual, quavering enquiries from yours (no head for heights) truly about the challenge met with an “It’s my job” shrug and a smile. Just one key rule, though: don’t drop anything.
