    Exclamation 6 Navy Vessels to see at V&A Watefront (Tomorrow is last day)

    Hi all,

    There are 6 Navy vessels docked in the V&A Waterfront harbour, tomorrow (Sunday the 1st June) is the last day they are FREE to BOARD and EXPLORE before they LEAVE on Monday.

    2 Brazillian Corvettes,
    2 Argentian Corvettes and 2 SA Corvettes.

    It's not exactly the most amazing thing ever, but it's still something random to do on a Sunday morning.

    I'm not sure what time the vessels 'open' or 'close' but yeah, I'll be there from 9/10am onwards.

    It's near the back of the V&A Watefront, near the heliport where all the 'large' ships dock.

    It's something fun to do with your family and kids etc, take photos with sailors etc, talk to foreign people about life on the boats, etc etc etc.

    Just thought I'd share this with you, I'll be there from 9/10pm onwards taking photos with my friends and such.

    I remember quite a few years ago some Japanese/Chinese(can't remember ) naval ships were visiting cpt and they held a public open day event like this one. It was really cool walking around on their frigates and destroyers

    Too bad I can't go see these ships...I have exams on Monday

    I remember a US aircraft carrier was going to dock at the waterfront - then 9/11 happened and they had to leave.

    Because, the vessels have these 'ladders' you have to climb, suffice to say, LOOK UP
