Tall Ships Revisit Belfast 2008

Another visit by the Tall Ships to Belfast Summer 2008
Spread over 2 days, this was a very enjoyable (and photogenic) weekend
with a number of the crew dressed in period costume (mainly the "Pirates of the Carribean" period)
and an "attack" by one of the vessels on another with cannon and musket fire, hand-to-hand fighting and the taking of hostages.
