Seen on a visit to Liverpool to see the 'Tall ships'.

From Wikipedia.

The Tall Ships' Races are races for sail training Tall Ships (sailing ships). Between 1973 and 2003 they were sponsored by Cutty Sark and called "The Cutty Sark Tall Ships' Races". They are currently supported by the city, province and port of Antwerp. The races are held annually in European waters and consists of two racing legs of several hundred nautical miles, and a "cruise in company" between the legs.

The phrase tall ship was coined to describe the participating ships. Participating vessels are manned by a largely cadet or trainee crew who are partaking in sail training, 50 percent of which must be aged between 15 and 25 and do not need any previous experience. Thus, tall ship does not describe a specific type of sailing vessel, but rather a monohull sailing vessel of at least 9.4 metres that is conducting sail training and education under sail voyages. Participating ships range from yachts to the large square-rigged sail training ships run by charities, schools and navies of many countries.

Hello Stephen

A good capture here with an interesting POV and excellent texture. I think maybe the shadows are a little distracting and thus maybe a different angle would have enhanced the shot. Informative notes make an overall very good posting.

TFS regards Helen
