Tall Ships Sail Into Belfast

By Linda Tancs

Belfast’s Maritime Festival this weekend is all the more special as Belfast hosts the final leg of the Tall Ships Atlantic Challenge 2009, a 7000-nautical-mile race that began in April at Vigo in the northwest corner of Spain. The ships will be berthed along Queen’s Quay, Abercorn Basin, Donegall Quay and Albert Quay, presenting a spectacular array of square-rigged and modern-rigged vessels with and without spinnaker-like sails. It’s anchors aweigh on the afternoon of 16 August. The best viewing will be along the County Down and County Antrim coastlines.
