The second day of the Falmouth Tall Ships Regatta culminated with the Crew Parade starting at Events Square and processing through the town.

The lively and colourful parade was watched by hundred of locals and visitors and included a cross dressing Captain Birdseye and friends as well as pirates, youngsters, dancers and acrobats and of course the tall ship crews.

The first day of the Falmouth Tall Ships regatta saw over 18,000 visitors to the docks with many more in the town.

The docks are open again today and tonight culminates in a massive firework display while tomorrow sees the spectacular parade of sail as the ships head off to Greenwich for the final part of the regatta.

Don't forget the Abba Revival tribute on Events Square tonight at 9.30pm, immediately after the fireworks have finished over the harbour.
