In case you hadn't heard about it...
"The Royal Navy - inspired for the past 200 years by the remarkable life of Admiral Lord Nelson and the dramatic victory at Trafalgar - is proud to organise Trafalgar 200 and to take a leading role within the wider Trafalgar Festival and SeaBritain 2005.
The Royal Air Force and elements of the Army will join forces to show why we're one of the world's premier 21st-century fighting forces.
Navies from some 40 other countries are expected at the International Fleet Review - warships will gather from around the globe as a wonderful reminder of how the sea has brought together so many countries in friendship.
Also joining us will be thousands of non-military people. At the International Festival of the Sea you can talk to sailors about what life at sea is really like and see a huge variety of vessels, including tall ships, merchant vessels, fishing boats and so much more."
"The 2005 International Festival of the Sea (IFOS) will be a vibrant and exciting celebration bringing together sailors, musicians, artists, entertainers, ships and boats from all points of the compass. Come and walk aboard many of the ships that appeared in the International Fleet Review."
