Good luck to them Neville - wouldn't mind crewing on that voyage.

A friend of mine crewed for his brother who organised a similar trip last summer from London to St Petersburg. They were carrying 'Imperial Stout' however, their vessel wasn't a period piece like Irene - they chartered the 60 foot THERMOPYLAE CLIPPER.

Have a look here and here.
