The view of the Outer Harbour from The Grand Turk

THE Grand Turk sailing frigate became the first passenger vessel to enter Great Yarmouth's Outer Harbour today (Friday).

The ship, which was featured in the Hornblower TV series, took the Maritime festival's main sponsors and guests on a trip down river from the Town Hall, and out to near Scroby Sands windfarm

And on the way back it "popped" into the Outer harbour - by kind permission of festival sponsors EastPort - turned in a circle inside and "popped" out again, before making it's way back upriver to South Quay.
