Tall Ships gather in Hamilton- Amelia’s Update
Posted by Tall Ships America on June 12, 2009
Following a crew party Wednesday night at the Dinghy Club in St. George that was filled with barbeque and great music (including bluegrass from the talented crew of Pride of Baltimore II and a sing-along from Rona II), a Thursday morning parade of ships made their way from St. George to Hamilton, Bermuda.
Aboard Pride 2, we came in under sail and fired our cannon on our friends Spirit of South Carolina and all of Hamilton. It was exciting to be a part of the fleet and see the many small boats that came for the sight of such a huge fleet. In light of the special occassion, Pride 2 flew for the first time ever an American flag 30 x 42 feet that was previously flown over Fort McHenry in Baltimore, MD. With great pride and sense of humor, this morning the crew decided the enormous flag will be a unit of measurement (Capitan Miranda is two flags away)!
