The Tall Ships close up

As part of the walk along the Waterfront, I try and get some images that give a closer feel for the complexity of the boats and the fun that the crews have. Firstly, this crew were busy opening up, hanging up and painting new sets of white tights! Now, you may wonder why. Well I asked this pretty Dutch girl. I didn’t fully follow the explanation – it involved the word Mikado, I think – but I did grasp that it was being done in aid of a party that they intend to hold this evening. Mind you, If I remember, they don’t party late as they have to be up bright and early to get going again on their way back to Rotterdam.

Lastly, I will show some of the crews – some of whom had snazzy matching coats whilst others didn’t!

They were all happy to give us a wave though!
