Tuesdays and Thursdays are tall ship days!

In the run up to the Tall Ships Races 2015, I thought it would be interesting to see what other class A tall ships will be entering into the first leg of the race from Belfast, Northern Ireland to Alesund, Norway.  I also thought it would be good to exhibit the other vessels here on my blog so that my family, friends and followers can see some of the types of ship I will be racing against.  To do this I decided to dedicate Tuesdays and Thursdays to be Tall Ships Days on my blog in the run up to the Tall Ships Races.  I could not include every vessel that has entered as there are around 50 in total, so I have only focused on the A Class ships.  

I guess the first Class A tall ship I should tell you about is the one that I will be sailing on – Lord Nelson

I hope you enjoy Tall Ship Tuesdays and Tall Ship Thursdays – excitement is building as it is all getting a little bit closer!
