Torbay-Tall Ships Regatta

Your intrepid correspondent was out early this morning, well around 11.00 ish anyway, to bring to you some of the delightful vessels currently in Torbay at the start of the Tall Ships run to Santander.
Unfortunately, after 5 shots, the batteries ran out in my camera. Ah well, here we are then.
1. Kruzenshtern
2. Kruzenshtern
3. Mer (Peace)
4. Mer
5. Of interest to many here, a Russian RIB, Sportz. With 36hp Diesel outboard.

Great pictures Brian, looks like it might be a bit lumpy though for the start with a 12mph Eastery

Was toying with the idea of the helicopter ride but then saw the price think I'll stick to closeup from the boat

Hope to see you out there Paul have to wave though as I'm not sure which is your new boat yet
