Belfast's seafaring links have been celebrated with the inaugural Maritime Festival which took place at the weekend - landlubbers also enjoyed activities such as a continental market and fireworks.
The Jeannie Johnston was one of the attractions - the replica ship tells the story of the Great Famine which swept Ireland in the middle of the 19th century.
The eight Tall Ships had made their way across the high seas towards Belfast for the festival.
The vessels were berthed in the shadow of the world-famous Harland and Wolff shipyard.
Crew members toiled away on the Swedish-built Zebu, getting it ship-shape for the public to inspect.
The Zebu is one of the last traditional sailing ships to have circumnavigated the globe.
The Tall Ships were berthed on both sides of the River Lagan, at the Abercorn Basin and Queen's Quay beside the Odyssey, and at Donegall Quay.
A full-size replica of late 18th-century Royal Navy frigate HMS Blandford, the Grand Turk has appeared in a number of television programmes in recent years.
