People lined the beach and back beach today to watch the two-masted brig Stavros S Niarchos owned by the Tall Ships Youth Trust arrive in the harbour. The ship was accompanied by a flotilla of local small boats that formed a welcome party at the entrance to the channel.

The Stavros S Niarchos  made her way past The Ness towards the waiting crowds on The Point.

Unon arrival at The Point she majestically turned into the harbour giving the watching crowds one of the most spectacular arrivals in the harbour in recent years.

The Stavros S Niarchos stayed in Teignmouth harbour for 24 hours before leaving to continue its voyage. The ship is currently for sale should any member feel their current yacht or dinghy is getting to feel a bit small.
