Red Sails is a documentary which explores through interviews and archive footage, the influence of the Thames Sailing Barge in the development of trade, and its contribution to the building of Victorian London. It also looks in detail at the craftsmen and their trades, which made the Thames barge so unique. A few have become barge yachts for chartering, but the Thames barge lives on through the recent restoration of one of the most famous: the Cambria.

Many congratulations on the magnificent film. I think the applause at the end expressed everybody’s sentiment.

Big thanks to Michael Maloney. A superb film. Well done.
Bob and I –and many other people I talked to afterwards – thoroughly enjoyed ‘Red Sails’. It was well researched, beautifully filmed and put together. The film is a valuable contribution to the understanding of the Thames Barge.
