By Gary Grattan

The Tall Ships 2015 - expected to be the biggest event ever staged in Northern Ireland - officially gets underway. Around 500,000 people will converge on Belfast quaysides between now and Sunday to soak up the atmosphere. Another 500,000 people are expected to line the Co Antrim and Down coasts on Sunday for the spectacle of the 'Parade of Sail' as the ships leave. The event is predicted to boost the city's economy to the tune of £10m.
