Brixham Pirate Festival Nao Victoria
Arrival into Brixham Harbour
We were asked by the organisers of the Brixham Pirate Festival if we would film the arrival of the Nao Victoria for the start of the 2017 Pirate Festival. After some tense moments as to whether she would arrive in the dead of the night, we finally saw her arrive on the horizon just as the sun rose.
The Brixham Pirate Festival happens each May bank holiday weekend and has just celebrated its 9th year.
The Nao Victoria is a replica of the original vessel that was the first to circumnavigate the globe between 1519 and 1522. The replica of the Nao Victoria was the first historical replica to circumnavigate the Earth between 2004 and 2006.
