Thanks very much to former secretary of the Naval College, Robert Edmonds, for providing Greenwich.co.uk with this footage he shot of the Tall Ships Race passing Greenwich in 1989. I have cut Robert's 60 minute footage down to this 20 minute highlights version.
The council is bidding to bring the tall ships back to the Thames during the 2016 race.,
Fans of tall ships may like this photo of Thalassa below passing the Old Royal Naval College. It features in the souvenir calendar produced for Greenwich.co.uk for 2013 .
