Tall Ship Festival

The Victoria Tall Ship Festival started with a sailpast at the breakwater around noon today. The water was good for sailing, but a bit overcast and windy. It was great because all the ships were able to have their sales full. They enter the inner harbour this afternoon and will be available for boarding during the festival. Apparently it was too bumpy to have people board the boats while at sea today for a ride. Thousands were on hand at the Dallas Road breakwater today to watch the sailpast.
There are many interesting boats in the Festival this year. One of the coolest looking was a replica of the Pinta, sailed by Christopher Columbus. For more information click here.
