“She was a very good sailer…”

“She [Falls of Clyde] was a very good sailer. She glided through the water like a porpoise. She made no fuss.” — Henry Brammar

From “When Henry Was A Sailor, Wind, Muscle Did The Work” (The Pittsburgh Press, 31 Mar 1982)

Brammar was a member of Falls of Clyde’s crew in 1911.

  1. The Falls of Clyde is a survivor. We joined the president of the Friends of Falls of Clyde on a tour of this ship. Watch the video to see for yourself.
