London Tall Ships regatta – September 2014

All but the last few sailing vessels have now left London either for their home ports or their next destination and the waters of the Thames in East London have returned to their normal traffic patterns but the memories of the sights of so many sailing ships on the river will last for a very long time.

Most of the visiting sailing ships were part of the Falmouth to Greenwich tall ships race and regatta and these were joined by additional ships taking part in the sail Greenwich cruising event.
