Moosk is a recent entry in the Tall Ships fleet; however she is one of the oldest. She was built as a gentleman’s yacht in Falmouth in 1906 to Lloyds’ A1 specifications. After a full life with many different owners, she was abandoned during the 1970s in the outskirts of Glasgow. Cremyll Sailing found her hull there in 1999 and started off with the project of rebuilding her completely for sail training with young people for a maximum of 8 trainees on board. The hull was in excellent conditions, considered the lack of care it experienced. However the rebuilt was quite extensive and she was eventually ready to sail in 2001. Since then her voyages have gradually expanded, until last year, when she took part to the famous 50th Anniversary Tall Ships’ Races across to Spain.
Moosk has by now met a wide variety of trainees, from special need youngsters to students during term time, from young people belonging to youth clubs and inclusion centres to teenagers during holiday activities week. Everyone has his own special memory about her that will last forever and many of them have developed a different outlook on life thanks to their sailing experience. Her secret is very simple: there are no big egos on such a small boat.
