"Be careful with that tall boat! It's a very blustery day!"
— Elizabeth

Thomas Sets Sail is the twelfth episode of the eleventh season.


Thomas is carrying the Mayor of Sodor's yacht from the docks to the harbour. He is told to wait for an engineer to put the ships tall mast down, but Thomas is too impatient to wait. When Thomas goes through some trees the sail unravels and the wind goes up, blowing Thomas down the track and past the harbour. Thomas realises his mistake and collects an engineer from the harbour. The engineer puts the mast down, Thomas is able to stop at the harbour and the yacht is able to be unloaded and launched.




  • In several shots of Thomas being carried by the wind, the footage is sped up.
  • Going by production order, this is the third episode of the eleventh season.
  • This episode marks Molly's last speaking role to date.
  • This episode was shown in select US cinemas as part of Thomas and Friends on the Big Screen.


  • When Thomas arrives at the docks, his wellwagon is tilted.
  • Elizabeth has Bertie's horn sound.
