Ghost Ship to arrive in Newcastle

Image a ship sailing up the Tyne with no-one on board. A Ghost ship.

Well if you’re around on the 27th July near the end of the Tall Ships Race you may just see the ghost ship arrive…

Travelling from the Fair Isle in scotland all the way down the east coast of britain, using the latest technology to enable the ship to be navigated unmanned it should be interesting to see if a) it makes it and b) what equipment it actually has on board.

I shall try to capture some photos of it when it arrives.

On another small note I wanted to link to the Ten Feet Away website, which was mentioned in the latest Big Issue. Its an art festival (plus year round events) run by/for and displaying the art of homeless people in london. Shame there aren’t more things like this up here.
