‘We watched it for a while as it made its way to the breakwater and towards Guernsey, passing a Condor ferry on the way.’
Mr Cook suggested it could be The Matthew, a replica of the 15th-century ship that took John Cabot from Bristol to Newfoundland.
‘When I got back I noticed it wasn’t docked, so I thought it could be the one I saw.’
But doubts persist. Enquiries to the organisation that runs the Matthew for corporate and public trips have not yielded a response, and the vessel did not stop at Guernsey or Alderney, according to harbour authorities.
Was it a ghost ship?
