Turkish Delight

The "Grand Turk" is back in Ramsgate harbour offering tars, pirates and landlubbers the chance to wander around her decks without pitching waves and sneaky attacks from those damned Frenchies.
It verges on the pricey at five quid per adult and two-fifty for sprogs but remains a delightful distraction with a hint of nostalgia, as once the harbour was marmalade-stacked with tall ships.
Of course it's a reproduction but also the star of ITV's period drama "Hornblower " although at times it's the least wooden of the cast.
