    1. Was a wonderful sight - combined with total chaos on the water around them - a few horns were sounded !. Mawnan Smith was completely jammed as we all tried to get out later in the afternoon ! Sue

    1. Hi Bob, - saw your facebook chat to Mel too late - we were on Rosemullion Head - same as 2008. left home at 8am as we wanted to be on the front row. Worth it as we just sat in our chairs and took photos - so lucky with the weather.
      Just looked at your superb shots - gather you were on the water must be amazing down there amongst it all. Sue

  6. Hi Perranlady!

    I hope you recieve this message well. I am contacting you about your Falmouth Tall Ships parade album. I began my career on tall ships and am sailing as Mate aboard on of the vessels the day your pictures were taken. It has taken 12+months to track you down as the owner of the pics and i would like to discuss the possibility of prints. I would love to hear from you. tomfield21@ yahoo.co .uk

    Kind regards
