SPOT the link between these two vessels – the saltire spinnaker gives you a clue.

Both are named after Scotland’s capital and they are both about to sail the world.

The Type 42 destroyer HMS Edinburgh and the clipper yacht Edinburgh Inspiring Capital briefly came alongside each other in the Solent.

As the warship sailed from Portsmouth for a seven-month deployment to the South Atlantic she spotted the Clipper 11-12 Round the World yacht and her crew sailing off the Isle of Wight.

Edinburgh’s ship’s company waved a greeting to the yacht, sailing alongside her before leaving for their long journey south.
