HRH The Countess of Wessex, at the finish of the the Falmouth to Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Regatta, was captured in a “selfie” with Leading Sea Cadet Morgan Smith from the Peterhead unit recently.

The UK’s Sail Training umbrella organisation, ASTO, had vessels from all over the British Isles taking part in the Regatta including Scotland, Wales, East Anglia and the South of England, and at least half of the trainees on board each boat will be under 25.

Over 280 young people from a wide range of backgrounds sailed on board 19 boats operated by ASTO members.

It is the first time a Tall Ships Race has both started and finished in a UK port.
