Hi Geoff,
Iberian Coast Traded regularly between Newcastle and Hamburg/Bremerhaven.I had regular Captain ( name escapes for moment) who reluctantly took his leave so I never had the pleasure of being in command of her but did sail on her as mate. Lots of tales to tell about that also. Very bad passage once to Hamburg. Captain only Knew on way to go. Straight line on chart. took us over shallow water of Dogger Bank in about force 10 and sea so bad with heave sand content actual corrugated real deck housing. memorable !!
