The waterfront of Derry city has been in festive mode in recent days with the full presence of the Clipper Round the World fleet, in which the home entry Derry/Londonderry/Doire is in the frame for a podium position when the next leg starts on Sunday to Den Helder in the Netherlands.

After that, there’s just one final sprint to complete the circuit back at the start port of London. But meanwhile in Derry, the waterfront beside the Foyle Marina has been given a fairground atmosphere thanks to a huge variety of market stalls and a continuous range of entertainment for all ages, with the city’s legendary hospitality being lavishly dispensed for all the crews and their support teams.
