The Tall Ships are back in the Thames, between Greenwich and Woolwich, from 5th Sept to 9th Sept 2014.
For first timers, there'll be up to a dozen of the spectacular four masters, close to 40 other sail training ships and the rest (perhaps 50) a miscellany. In Amsterdam one such was a sofa floating on oil drums with pedal power driving a paddle wheel.
However, I don't think you see the biggest craft under sail. They use engines, either their own or tug's. It would be dangerous to sail in what is still a busy commercial shipping channel.
You can go aboard some of the boats, either alongside the bank or via a £3 shuttle boat if moored in the channel.
