Tall Ships to return to the Thames

I picked up an Evening Standard on Wednesday, but have only just got around to reading it.  There's an advert for the Sail Royal Greenwich 2013 event, taking place 28th August to 1st September.

I love the Tall Ships and am really looking forward to seeing them.  Apparently there will be 16 Tall Ships, plus many more smaller ones, and fireworks in the evening.  If you feel like spending a bit of money, you can buy daytime and evening cruises, which could be a lot of fun (although not inexpensive). 

The Sail Royal Greenwich website is a bit disorganized but if you stick with it there's a lot of information in there.
