Thread Name: Tall Ships Parade/Festival, pro/con???
Subject: RE: Tall Ships Parade/Festival, pro/con???
A couple of years ago, I went off to Port Alberni, BC for a tall ships festival. It was a gorgeous location, and we were able to board all the ships, which was great, but the associated festival was a "fun fair" type event totally unassociated with anything maritime, which seemed a shame. And yes, all the music was rock 'n' roll.

(In Vancouver the following week, though, they at least got Tom Lewis in.)

I'm with you, Barry, I'd love to bunk aboard. However, I don't know where they'd put the crew while I was there.... On the other hand, some of the sailors were quite the hunks (especially those Spanish and Russian sailors!), so p'rhaps arrangements could be made.
