With all the activity in West India Dock , it was a pleasant surprise to see the arrival of the British Tall Ship Stavros S Niarchos into dock today. The Stavros S Niarchos was last in the dock in July and is a regular visitor to the West India Dock, Thames and  Tall Ship events. The Stavros S Niarchos is a British brig-rigged tall ship owned and operated by the Tall Ships Youth Trust.

Built in 2000, she has been used to give young people the opportunity to develop skills and talents whilst undertaking voyages to various locations. She is also available for voyages and holidays which provide revenue to maintain the operation of the ship.

When she visited last year, the Stavros S Niarchos was put up for sale, it does appear that is still the case, so if you have dreamed of owning your own tall ship here is your opportunity.
