A replica of the G. L. Watson designed royal yacht Britannia is eventually launched in Russia

The picture many classic yacht enthusiasts have been waiting for. A modern day replica of the Royal Yacht Britannia takes to the water in Archangel, Russia after Sigurd Coates eventually extracted her from the yard whose owner had claimed the yacht did not belong to the man who commissioned her. Hopefully Britannia will be sailing soon and will be seen in the UK next season. Watch this space for more pictures and information.
