Tall ships are among the sailing craft taking part in a race from Torbay to Dieppe.
Titles read: "TALL SHIPS RACE".
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.
