Tall Ships in Newport - photos

The Tall Ship's most recent visit to Newport, RI this past week was a huge success to local businesses, visiting tourists and the area's spectator fleet. These ships are from countries all over the world and are mostly used as training ships - with cadets living aboard for months at a time.

Literally hundreds of thousands of people clogged the streets and waterfront areas of Newport, aspiring to see the visiting ships from land. The best way though, was definitely by water. We were on the boat all this past weekend and sailed down the Bay to Newport to experience the magnificence of these ships from the water's vantage point.

Of the hundred or so photos we took, I thought many of you sailors may enjoy seeing a few. On Saturday, we navigated around the Harbor to see all 19 ships at both anchor and dockside. You don't realize the scale of these boats, until seen up close from the water.















The next day, on Sunday, we positioned ourselves at anchor off the southwest end of Rose Island to see the Parade of Sail. Due to Homeland Security measures, the USCG and local water officers patrolled the perimeter of the charted parade route to keep all spectator boats away.

We stayed at anchor for the entire fleet's sail up the Bay and took some distant photos during this segment. For the parade's downwind leg under the Newport Bridge as the ships departed Narragansett Bay in their journey to other ports, I decided to weigh anchor and sail alongside them.

Security seemed a bit more relaxed during this portion of the parade, so I took advantage by sailing closer - getting some nice shots in the process. Weather during this event couldn't have been better, all in all, a fantastic weekend for us.

TB,
Fantastic photos. Looks like the cover of my Royce's Sailing Illustrated. Are the ships mainly based in western hemisphere ports, or do they cross the pond?

Thanks, but just realized that I may not have reduced the photo resolution enough. Sorry for everyone with limited internet access speed.

The ships are from all over - a description found on this website: Tall Ships - Newport

A brief identification of the ones I have pictured above is as follows:

1. Gorch Fock II - a Barque from Germany. LOA 293', 21,140 sf sail area.
2. Cisne Branco - a Full Rigged ship from Brazil. LOA 254', 23,627 sf sail area.
3 & 6. Taragini - a Barque from India. LOA 177', 10,392 sf sail area.
4. Gloria, a Barque from Columbia. LOA 250'. 15,000 sf sail area.
5. Picton Castle - a Barque from Cook Islands, New Zealand. LOA 176', 12,450 sf sail area.
7. Prince William - a Brig from the United Kingdom. LOA 195', 12,503 sf sail area.

TB: Great shots! I was out there too (both days). It was a lot of fun.

By the way, don't try to say boat #1 ten times fast.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

TB....thanks man...that was really nice...

I knew the beautifull (to me) N.R.P. SAGRES was not there, because me and Tommyt saw it 3 weks ago in Cascais...the day before we sailed to Vilamoura...and if we saw here there, she could no be her that fast.

But...thanks to the wonders of the net...its as if she was there...because if I am not mistaken it was the first time she missed rol call in the USA..





hope you don't mind I post them here in your thread...

Thanks
