Trafalgar Day 

Tall ships gather in the Solent off the coast of Portsmouth, England, in preperation for a re-creation of a typical 1800's naval battle, 28 June, 2005 during the Trafalgar Day celebrations. A day after Bob Geldof's dazzling Live 8 concerts, his tie-in Sail 8 appeared a total disaster as just four boats -- carrying a grand total of zero demonstrators -- made it back to Britain from France. Sunday's scenes were an embarrassment in comparison to naval traffic during Tralfalgar Day celebrations as three yachts and a motor boat idled in to dock.(AFP/File /John D McHugh)
