She gained fame in the BBC television series The Onedin Line of which she was the ‘Charlotte Roads’ for 3 years.
She was the ‘Endurance’ in the BBC documentary of Shackleton’s fated voyage, the trial ship for the first 3 sailing years of the Jubilee Sailing Trust UK who now have Lord Nelson and Tenacious using many of the ideas trialed onboard Soren.
She sailed to the Southern Ocean as the Flagship of the 1988 re-enactment voyage.
She based herself in NZ for 20 plus years sailing the South Pacific Islands each winter.
She has sailed back to the UK twice since making her home in the Southern hemisphere.
She was the first British Square rigger to round Cape Horn in 68 years in 1991 when we sailed ‘Homeward around the Horn’ with Eye of the Wind and we were accepted into the famed Cape Horners Club. She made her home in Sydney in 2011.
She awaits adventurous people to once again want to sail the South Pacific so that she may start to voyage to the Islands once again.
We hope to sail to NZ to help celebrate NZ’s two maritime nationalities first the Polynesians and thence the English lead by Captain Cook in 1769.
