Tall Ships' Races, Liverpool
A tall ship on the River Mersey this morning (More photos »)

The ships about to participate in the Tall Ships' Races convened in Liverpool this weekend. This lunchtime, I managed to pop out of the office for half an hour to have a butcher's. The place was heaving.

There is an awful lot of interest in sailing ships. It seems to me that any enterprising company worth its salt (no pun intended) could do far worse than sponsor a tall ship. An interesting marketing opportunity. I mean, it's not as if they're ten-a-penny, is it?

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
