With the Sailing Barge 'Victor' usually tied
up at the quayside on Ipswich Marina,
there seems to be little use for its sea
anchor (I've never seen it deployed). The
Victor takes folk for bird-seeing and other
trips up and down the Orwell to Harwich
and Felixstowe Harbour, and I believe it's
done longer voyages, as in the old days, to
London and further up the East Coast.
Built in 1895 in Ipswich, it was converted
to a motor barge in the 1950s, one of the last survivors of her type. Her varied career
has included being (originally) a linseed carrier, a munitions barge for re-arming naval
vessels in WW2, houseboat, floating office and even, briefly, a strip club! Completely
refurbished and refitted in 2005, she now complies with full Passenger Certification for
40 persons and is a popular venue for charter and business events. This is not an
advertisement - I can personally vouch for the pleasure of such a trip, and the beer on
board (Adnams) is particularly well kept too.
