SZ-30MR - Tall Ships in Port
Nov 3, 2013

On the last Saturday of last month, having seen the arrival of the Tall Ships on Friday, I had a look at them in port. Here are three of them at Queens Wharf as I arrived by ferry -

From left to right are EUROPA, PICTON CASTLE and LORD NELSON.

I went on the wharf but did not join the queues to get on to them. There was the BREEZE under sail -

There was the 'Maritime Crew' on Princes Wharf. They are a bunch of shanty singers I had not seen since the America's Cup was raced here in Auckland -

I have their card in my pocket, so I must remember to send them a disk with the video.

Talking of video, here is the arrival of the Tall Ships, with lots of wind that shook the camera as well as the tripod.

The in-port video also takes you inside 'The Cloud' and gives you some of the shanty singing -

On Monday I did not miss the departure. There was a rain squall over the harbour, but I only got a few drops on the camera -

Now I must get on to make the discs for some of the people that feature in the second video.
