With an estimated 80,000 people turning out to welcome the Tall Ships yesterday, things are hotting up in Waterford. Aswell as the Tall Ships themselves there are craft and food villages in the city centre throughout the weekend. Traffic restrictions are in place over the three-day event so plan for some delays. The Tall Ships sail out on Sunday morning to start the race.
