Topsail Schooner Kathleen and May Leaving Liverpool for New Owners?

The 113 years old topsail schooner Kathleen and May, now berthed in Liverpool, may be on her way Asia, unless money can be raised from a local source to keep the retired merchant schooner in Great Britain. The schooner was the first ship to be listed on the National Historic Ships Register.  There is currently a bid on the old ship by an unnamed Asian source for £ 2.3 million.  The owner, Steve Clarke, has been forced to sell the schooner due to declining health.
