Thousands of spectator yachts and motor boats anchored around the inner bays of Sydney Harbour to watch the main day of International Navy Fleet Review spectacular. During the day, the Navy fleet warships cruised past dignitaries including Prince Harry and the Governor General. Quite an imposing sight.
Fly overs from various warplanes, roaring over boats created a real buzz. The stunt planes appeared just before sunset and amazed with breathtaking aerobatics.
The artistic fireworks on a clear evening did not disappoint. With fireworks barges moored westwards from Cockatoo island, to Clarke Island in the east, the flotilla of boats enjoyed synchronised pallets of colours into evening.
The International Navy Fleet review comprises over 40 warships, 8000 sailors from 20 countries. This special event will commemorate the centenary of the first entry of the Royal Australian Navy Fleet into Sydney Harbour. A century later, the program for the International Fleet Review on Sydney Harbour will include a tall ships parade, warships arrival, ceremonial fleet review, naval gun salutes, aerial flypasts, a spectacular fireworks display and light show.
