Farewell to the Tall Ships

25 Sep

After 5 amazing days of action, excitement and history, Hobart has said goodbye to the Tall Ships for 2013.

I was fortunate enough to be provided a seat on the Governors’ Launch, Egeria,  for the official Sail Past and then a seat, again on the Egeria, to chase down the fleet for a final farewell, from the people of Hobart.

With an excited group of locals and tourists, we motored down the Derwent River, toward Iron Pot and were lucky enough to be greeted by the fleet, sails aloft and reaching for the horizon. I may have a good vocabulary, but even I couldn’t find words to describe the scene. Hence, I take photographs. Here are just a few from that amazing trip.

A hearty thank you to the crew of the Egeria, for their kindness, welcoming and mostly for the experience and opportunity to go out and get these amazing shots.


Thank you to Paul Cullen from the Australian Wooden Boat Festival office, and of course Bronny. Finally, thank you to Rob Oates, for his support, guidance and making all of this possible.
