4th September 2019

An emotive film, with unseen footage, has been released to mark a month since the Arctic Corsair relocated to a temporary berth.

The country’s last surviving distant-water sidewinder trawler was moved for the first time in 20 years on Sunday 4 August. Huge crowds gathered to watch the hugely complex and special move.

To reminisce and see some spectacular views of the move, this film has been made to capture the poignant moments she set sail to begin a new chapter, securing her future for future generations.

Two tugs manoeuvred the historic Arctic Corsair down the River Hull, along the Humber estuary and into temporary storage at Alexandra Dock, provided by Siemens Gamesa with the support of Associated British Ports.

The Arctic Corsair is an important part of Hull’s maritime history and is loved by many people and it was only right the move was recorded.
