HMS Exploit

Whitehaven Harbour 10th July 2007

After the two naval patrol vessels visiting the harbour for the Maritime Festival it was good to see another arrive less than a month later. HMS Exploit (P167) built by Vosper Thornycroft is seen here on the Sugar Tongue in front of the Candlestick monument.
