The highlight of Kincardine's annual Marine Heritage Festival once again this year was the arrival of the brigantines, the Tall Ships.

Although the ships arrived late due to bad weather as they left Port Stanley and had to turn back, they did finally arrive in time for the celebrations on Saturday, August 26th and 27th.

The Tall Ships were built to sail the Great Lakes and the Pathfinder built in Kingston is approximately 53 years old.
