On Sunday, the Arctic Corsair, the country’s last surviving, distant-water, sidewinder trawler is to move from its current location for the first time in over 20 years!
This historic event will see the Arctic Corsair move to temporary storage at Associated British Ports. She will then receive a major programme of restoration works to secure her long-term future!
More information on the restoration works can be seen here https://maritimehull.co.uk/
The ship should have left its berth by 12 noon.
