Ruth sailed into Belfast's historic dock this July - the home of the Titanic. Ruth, the oldest vessel at the festival, was open to the public for 3 days along with the tall ships Tenacious, Kaskelot, Iris, De Gallant, and the Liverpool Baltic Trader Zebu. Zebu was built at the same shipyard as Ruth some 20 years later than our vessel. This was Belfast's first Harbour Festival and they plan to host the Tall Ships Race in 2009.
