This weekend Cascais hosted a fabulous gathering of beautiful traditional sailing barges from the Tagus, with expositions, conferences, sailing activities for everybody, a bonfire party and, today, a great concert by the Band of Portuguese Navy at Baía de Cascais, followed by a great lunch at the Museum of the Sea (Museu do Mar).
This photo in particular depicts one of Cascais sailing barges, named «Não é desgraça ser pobre» («Being poor is no disgrace»), at Cascais Bay, by night. She is one of the many sailing barges of River Tagus registered at the Tagus Army Official Registration Book, aiming at the preservation of these important and historic ships.
Other traditional sailing barges from the Tagus present today at Cascais were from many friends from Moita and Sarilhos Pequenos, such as the following, by alphabetic order:
The Sports Department of the Municipality of Cascais and the Captain of the Port of Lisbon and Cascais must receive a big applause for the splendid organisation and warm reception offered to all sailors and friends during this unforgettable weekend!
