• Short Summary

    Tall ships are among the sailing craft taking part in a race from Torbay to Dieppe.

  • Description

    Titles read: "TALL SHIPS RACE".

    Torbay, Devon.

    General view of Dartmouth. In the harbour we see several shots of the Amerigo Vespucci being prepared by Italian naval crew for a tall ships race from Torbay to Dieppe via Ushant. Sailors climb the rigging and haul ropes. The German ship Gorch Fock is prepared by her West German Navy crew.

    Several L/Ss of the ships moving out to the starting point in Tor Bay. The tall ships and several smaller craft pass the Royal Yacht Britannia then head out to sea on a rather misty day.

    Notes and cutting on file.

    Is it £30 for only 122 seconds or for the whole film? I have a Norwegian Friend who was training to be a sailor during this race! He is keen to own the whole film if possible?
