The Russian vessel Sedov -the largest of the expected ships, we spotted her on the horizon quite early on - it was slow progress so she didn't make it in time for the parade, possibly due to the strained relationships between the two countries they did not wish to fraternise with the natives ! This is a distant shot as she prepared to race.
We went to Falmouth early, but then discovered that the dogs were not allowed onto the main dock where the Class A Tall ships were docked - Rabies precautions. Still we got some good photos from the boat going from the car park to Falmouth & then walked to every vantage point we could - until the rain started & we gave up as it wasn't just a shower.We are heading to a vantage point over Falmouth Bay tomorrow to view The Parade of Ships just before the start of The Race. Definitely a walking boots day after all the rain !
