John Dyer draws the 'Spirit of Falmouth'

Artist John Dyer has been asked by the founder and CEO of Turn to Starboard, Shaun Pascoe to create a new iPad drawing of the tall ship Spirit of Falmouth.

Turn to Starboard is a COBSEO registered charity using RYA sailing courses to support Armed Forces personnel who have been affected by military operations. They support those who are Serving or Retired and their families.

"The tall ship is wonderful, I was invited to attend the re-naming of the ship in Falmouth and experienced the craft for myself. My daughter Wilamena climbed the rigging and we all ate pasties on deck. Wonderful. I was delighted to be asked to create this new drawing and hope that it will be a useful image for the charity on their postcards," John Dyer 2015.
