Tall Ships Set Out, 1964

Tall Ships Set Out 1964

The Tall Ships Race of 1964 leaves Plymouth Hoe with a good helping of British Pathé razzmatazz. The vessels taking part include Hoshi, Tawau, Etoile, Belle-Poule and the sailing ship Danmark.

At the time the presenter ruefully remarked that the British didn’t have a square-rigger – well thankfully we do now.

My thanks to Amy Davenport for pointing this one out.
