Tall ship Zebu from Liverpool has already been in the harbour for a week when the Tall Ship Kathleen and May arrives for Thursday lunchtime.
Tall ship the Kathleen and May entering Whitehaven harbour past the North Pier lighthouse.
People gathered to watch the tall ship passing through Whitehaven's sea lock.
Once in the inner harbour the Kathleen and May spun around to reverse back against the Sugar Tongue with the Crow's Nest structure in the background.
Tall Ship Zebu and Tall Ship Kathleen and May looked a splendid pair against the Sugar Tongue in Whitehaven's historic harbour.
Arrival of Tall Ship Irene
Tall Ship Irene looked quite small as she hung out to sea on Friday morning waiting for the high tide so that she could pass through the lock gates on free flow. It was still good to see her with some sails up.
However, once T.S. Irene passed through the lock gates into Whitehaven's inner harbour it was obvious she is quite a large vessel - similar in size to the 3 masted Kathleen and May.
She very quickly manoeuvred to her berth on the Sugar Tongue in between the Zebu and the Kathleen and May.
Once again Whitehaven festival had secured 3 tall ships to start the festival in grand style.
