Meanwhile the final Clipper boats have now arrived into Derry, with the final three having sailed up the Foyle this morning.

Excitement is building across the north west ahead of the festival, which will bring dozens of maritime themed events to the city centre, quayside and on to the River Foyle itself.
The International Market will open along the quayside tomorrow from 12pm, with a number of local Walled City Market traders having already set up and are open for business today.

The packed programme of festival events will also begin tomorrow at noon.
