It's a parade like no other. On a summer afternoon, they approach: schooners, yachts, brigantines—even fire boats and battleships. White sails billow grandly and woodwork gleams from the docks, and things remain exciting once the vessels drop anchor. Guests at the Tall Ships Festival can experience both their majesty and their intricacy by signing up for group tours of their interiors, where they can glimpse the captain's quarters, stand in awe of the heavy artillery, and witness the vast stores of canoes required to feed them every day.
