#TALLSHIPS – As previously reported on, the first Irish Sea Tall Ships Regatta, which was postponed on Sunday due to adverse weather, set off yesterday afternoon from Dun Laoghaire Harbour, writes Jehan Ashmore.

The majority of the 11-strong fleet did not return to Dublin Port after the Parade of Sail, but instead took shelter in Dun Laoghaire Harbour. This gave curious onlookers in the harbour an opportunity to see the vessels up close and personal, as they berthed alongside Carlisle Pier. The inaugural race consists only of a single leg and that is to Liverpool.

Among the fleet were the Dutch gaff schooner De Gallant, and three UK vessels, the ketch Maybe, the barquentine Pelican of London and another gaff schooner Johanna Lucretia. Several years ago the 96ft vessel built in 1945, had replaced the original vessel used in the RTE reality show 'Cabin Fever' after the Camaret of Cornwall, ran aground off Tory Island, Co. Donegal.
