Unafraid of Heights

Several crew members of the Snow Brig "Pilgrim" thought it would be fun to climb to the Royal Yard on the Main Mast of the Star of India.
The Royal Yard is the highest on this mast and this ship.
There was no work to do up there, but they stayed aloft for a few minutes away, waving to gawkers, and surveying the Festival of Sail below.

I'd love to do that. It must be a great view. Super capture of these sailors at work. V.

Great POV and excellent composition! Makes me a bit nervous to see them up there, but glad you were able to capture them in the act, so to speak. V.
