So it begins

Posted by astajesse on June 26, 2008

Greetings to all sailors and tall ships enthusiasts!  My name is Jesse Kumbera and I will be checking in periodically as an intern with the ASTA race team for the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE(r). We were first greeted in Port  Angeles by five of the tall ships as they berthed along the waterfront before their  passage to Victoria.  Since then we have spent the last two days enjoying the beautiful sunshine in Victoria and preparing for the festival to begin tomorrow. The Victoria Tall Ships Society has been preparing for months for the festival and with the ships arriving later today, everyone is busy making final preparations.  While we have had great time exploring beautiful Victoria and setting up our area, we are ready for the ships to come in and to get the festivities underway.  We cannot wait to meet you all here tomorrow!
