Tall Ships

The romance of the Tall Ships under full sail is a sight that continues to thrill and fascinate every year as they gather for the Cutty Sark Race.

This DVD is the first detailed 'on-board' study of some of the world's greatest sailing ships taking part in a Cutty Sark Tall Ships race and is an extended version of the original HTV documentary.

Celebrated Round-the-World yachtswoman Tracy Edwards is seen working with the crews and taking the helm of the brig Royalist. Share the excitement of the young crews as they prepare the ships in harbour; learn from experienced watch keepers what it is like to work and sail a Tall Ship; go aloft to watch the incredible agility and skill involved in setting and trimming the sails; and find out what it was like to live and sleep in a Tall Ship.

Tall Ships old and new featured in the video include: Poland's 350ft Dar Mlodziezy, the British barque Lord Nelson; barquentines Iskra II and Malcolm Miller; the Dutch schooner Eendracht and France's Belle Poule and Etoile. Other famous names include Astrid and Royalist. Nothing can match the thrill of sailing in a Tall Ship but this DVD comes close.

Commentary from Sail Training Association Race Director John H. Hamilton.

DVD EXTRAS: Contains a DVD-ROM section with information on how to recognise Tall Ships' Rigs and a Plan of Tall Ships which can be printed out if you play this disc in your PC (your PC must have a DVD-ROM player). Plus extra information about the ships taking part in the race on the reverse of the sleeve.
