So another Sail Royal Greenwich event comes to a close with a parade of sail comprising most of the attending ships.

The parade was led by the Portuguese 4 masted ship the Santa Maria Manuela although something must have got lost in translation as she wasn’t carrying any sails today, which was a shame.

Many of the ships are regular visitors to the Thames but are a welcome sight along the river.

The festival included thirteen ships based at Woolwich Arsenal pier and two at Greenwich ship tier – a full list of the ships that attended can seen here and more photos here. Already looking forward to the next event.
