Gorch Foch amongst the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf
A little bit like steam trains, a tall ship with sails and a network of rigging conjures up images of nostagia.
If you are British and of a certain age it is very difficult to see a sailing ship without the soundtrack of the Onedin Line playing around somewhere in your mind.
