When did you last step aboard the Glenlee?

We are so proud of our Historic Tall Ship berthed on the River Clyde. As a visitor attraction we love to share the tales of the sea and the technology that made Glasgow one of the busiest ports in the world.

Having visitors back aboard this week has been amazing and we feel so lucky to have so much to share. We are open seven days a week and it's free to visit. Of course a charity we welcome donations to help maintain the ship and continue to share the experiences of the people who shaped our city.

For #EarthDay2021 the crew take a moment to clean the slip at Kelvin Harbour ahead of opening next Monday.

Did you know the world ‘tidy’ comes from the regular and orderly movement of the tides? Amazing and sad to see what the tide brings in.

The Tall Ship Living History: Ghastly Grub

Food aboard sailing ships was not a gourmet experience! Join us as we learn about such delights as ship’s biscuit, lime juice and salt beef!

Well done to Jamie Hunter on passing his IRATA Level 2 course!

IRATA is a rope access scheme which the crew use to safely access some parts of the rig. Jamie is the first member of our crew to reach Level 2. Jamie is seen here supervising another member of the crew when checking the rig last year. We don’t have exact lengths of all the wire aloft but it has got to be in the kilometres range and it all needs checked every year.

Did you know? It was common for pirates to hide their crew below deck in order to better surprise their targets. Ships that had the crew visible on deck were seen as honest - this is where the phrase 'above board' comes from.

It is with sadness that the Team at The Tall Ship Glenlee learned of the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh. As a former Naval Officer His Royal Highness was interested in the sea and seafaring and was a supporter of Glenlee. We were proud to have him visit Glenlee although his visit was almost twenty years ago.
In 2001, we recorded the first strike of the Bell. Today, we record Eight Bells at the end of his watch. His support will be much missed.

Did you know? The ships bell was used to mark time and was rang eight times over each four-hour watch. It is traditional at a sailor's funeral to sound a bell eight times to mark their personal end of watch.

Did you know? The term 'knowing the ropes' refers to the fact that ships have miles of ropes in the rigging, and the only way to keep track of what they all did was to remember where each one went. This would take a sailor years to learn.

Can someone please tell me where the photos of the Glenlee's last voyage can been seen? They were wrritten up in a story in the Evening Tims of 25th May after they had been researched by Elizabeth Allen of the Clyde Maritime Trust, and I would like to give the story a mention in the Glasgow & West of Scotland Family History Society page.
