Arrival of the MIR

by Rui Sousa September. 30, 2008 2525 views

On this week, the tallships participating in Funchal 500 Tallships Regatta 2008 started to arrive at Madeira.
It was a tall ship competition organized for the city's 500 Years celebrations.
This day, I went to the roof of my work and noticed russian tallship MIR was arriving…

Earlier that day, as I was heading to work noticed that other ships had already arrived.
In this case, the world's biggest tallship: Sedov, also from Russia.

Although it was backlight, had to make a pic of “our” tallship, the portuguese “Creoula”.
Too bad the other one “NRP Sagres” couldn't came also. Was somewhere around South Africa…
