In order to kick off this years Belfast Harbor Fest, the town received some visitors, who it seems to me, puts us on the yachting world map.
The tide was low but spirits high as we strolled past the boat ramp..
With pennants flying against a beautiful blue sky,
The New York Yacht Club had arrived..
A good contingency had tied up or moored in Belfast Bay, consequently making the Public Landing a very busy spot to be..
Motor yachts, sailboats, dories and dinghies, all contributed to the hustle and bustle of a very busy waterfront…
What a change from the “Smaltz Port” notoriety that was Belfast’s reputation years ago when the bay was used for convenient disposal of raw sewerage and chicken offal.
But those days are long gone and now Belfast has become A Destination for cruise ships, boats and yachts of all shapes and sizes..
And it is so very nice to see..
