Hubby had studied the tide times and been on the internet to work out that there were a few ships hanging around at Southend and between us we’d decided that they’d want a bit of water under them once the tide turned so I should turn up about three.  I wasn’t disappointed as they turned up in quick succession over the next three hours, well slightly that some weren’t showing off and still in sail, but it was fabulous none the less.

I’m drifting off to bed now, look out for the people perched in high rise places and my heart skipped a beat every time a ship came around the bend in the river.  I can just imagine how formidable they must have looked in years gone by.

    Ah that brings back a few memories – I sailed in the Tall Ships Races of 1997 and 1998 on Morning Star (who may or may not have been there)!
