Three Sons - rolling her way in to Brixham

Some time visitor to Newlyn, the Three Sons making her way in to Brixham Harbour in scuffly weather. Unlike Newlyn, boats entering Brixham are afforded the luxury (comfort-wise) of keeping their derricks lowered until,after they have entered the harbour. Entering Newlyn with you derricks down in a southerly - sou-easterly blow would be extremely risky as the harbour entrance is considerably smaller.

The video is one of many featured on the new all-singing all-dancing Brixham Trawler Agents web site.
