Tall Ships on Sydney Harbour

This week celebrates the 100th anniversary of the RAN.

Today a fleet of tall ships enters the harbour and me, I've taken the day off work to stay home and watch 'em.

Sadly the weather is rubbish but pics hopefully to follow.

Good stuff, TD!

If you get a chance to look over Europa, say hello to Captain Klaas for me.

Way too many people for my liking C. I'll content myslef with watching them glide by. You should send a text to the Bentone ... I believe he is doing the tour.

Always seems to be missing something when this fleet show up, whitecaps abound, with all sails furled

Re: Tall Ships on Sydney Harbour

Fast ..... wind was blowing from the south west. They'd never have made it through the heads under sail. Sad I know, but there you have it.

Otoh .... this pic does not indicate SouWesterly ..... I'm confused.

Given completely different water-line lengths, the need to maintain steerage-way, maintain some semblance of formation and a rather congested harbour, personally I'm not surprised they'd come in under motor, sails furled. Safety first.

They had people standing on the yards when they came in to Adelaide.. but that was in nicer weather. It's a great view from up there, but you're not exactly standing on a flat (or even) surface nor is there a whole lot to hang on to.. and it's a long way down!
