Tall Ships Race

All our plans to visit the Tall Ships stop over in Lisbon on Saturday fell apart which meant we weren't able to actually get on board any of them...  however, we did make it on Sunday to watch the ships move off on to the next leg of the race:

Amazingly, we managed to be right at the water's edge.  The wind had the ships moving swiftly pass and also helped keep all spectators cool.  There was probably one person present who wasn't too pleased with it's strength as it whipped off his/her hat and plonked it into the water - no hope of retrieving it either!
