A LegenDerry festival for Northern Ireland

Almost two years ago I blogged on the Clipper Round the World race when it visited my home town of Derry.  And here we are again in the sunshine ready to welcome the crews back to the North West.

LegenDerry Festival boats await the clipper race arrivals on the river foyle

Due to weather conditions the first crews won’t arrive in the city until early on Monday morning.  But that hasn’t stopped the start of the LegenDerry 2014 Maritime festival from getting underway.  Music City Day started earlier today with a variety of performances taking place throughout the city.

Visitors from all over the world have flocked to the banks of the Foyle to enjoy the weather, music and the massive continental market along the quayside.

We’ll have more updates throughout the festival.  And all the latest from the Clipper Race teams arriving in the next few days.
