My little sister was on 'The Morning Star of Revelation' on the Brest to La Corouna leg of the 2002 tall ships race, so on a -really- hot August day, we went to gawp at the pretty sailing ships when the came back to Portsmouth. Pretty rigging, lots of white paint, and men in sailor-suits...

[Ed: I don't remember the names of most of these ships, so I'll ask my sister, who will, and then update the notes.]

The littlest class of ships - Morning Star size - sorry, I'm clueless about maritime stuff...
And some rather bigger sailing ships - owned by, among others, the Russian Navy. Their crew of cadets get pennies pay, and then only when on shore-leave. Some of the most impressive rigging and masts, though.
