THE GIANT hull of Britannia was finally lifted from her cradle in East Cowes yesterday morning (Friday), after a previous attempt was scuppered by technical issues.
The 52-metre-long replica of King George V’s famous yacht was lifted from the apron at Venture Quays and placed in the water, ahead of her being towed from the Isle of Wight to Hythe early next week.
