In a former life Keith Stockdale our training officer was a Watch Officer aboard the tall ship Malcolm Miller so we are devoting a page to images of his time aboard this vessel, sadly she is no longer in the sail training fleet.

Launched in 1967 in Aberdeen, Scotland, by John Lewis & Sons to designs by Camper & Nicholsons, Malcolm Miller – sister ship to the Sir Winston Churchill – is one of the original three-masted topsail schooners used by the Sail Training Association.


She is now in private hands and has recently been fully restored in Gdansk, Poland.
