Yesterday was an absolutely wonderful day! Tall Ships Race 2011 - Greenock.
Remember to click on photos to see more details.
One of the most memorable local occasions for years. I wish I was a proper writer so that I could give you a flavour of just how amazing it was to see so many sailing vessels on the Clyde.
Everyone from miles around who had a boat was out to say goodbye to our visitors - even the odd pirate ship!
For those of a nervous disposition - don't look at the next few photos. Some of you mentioned that there was no way you could stand on the rigging - well some brave souls did - look!
This is the Columbian ship "Gloria" - wow, how brave are they?!
Of course no event like this would be safe without our trusty coastguard - what a great job they do, keeping folk safe.
It was marvellous!
That's all folks!
