Hi Bob

Its probably Carnival getting in early to pre-empt  competition.  See the To Be Advised for some vessel names.

I was interested to note that the new "Home Port ships" terminal at White Bay 5 is scheduled for use in March 2013.   Which also gives an indication of the expected progress of the huge Barangaroo development of the old container ship wharves where there is currently a tent city terminal.

Best regards
Clyde

Hello together

the event in Flensburg this year is called Flensburg Nautics, see here

http://www.nautics-flensburg.de/

sorry the whole description is only in german !!! I think nowadays it should be in english as well and due to the fact that Danmark is around the corner also in danish but.......

But somehow "ship is schiff" and so it should be possible to see the sailing ships which are part of this event.

The famous "Dampf Rundum" one of the biggest event for steamships in Europe will be held July 2013

Best regards
