A 4th of July welcome into Boston

Posted by Tall Ships America on July 5, 2009

As New England enjoys a second day of beautiful, sunny weather, two ships wait as the rest of  fleet makes their way up the coast and heads towards Boston.  Irek Zubko of Fazisi said that as their vessel arrived in Boston last night, they were welcomed into the harbor by the annual fireworks display. It was an amazing site and much appreciated by the crew after a week at sea. The crew is thrilled to be in Boston and they are thoroughly enjoying this historic city and looking forward to the next maritime city of Halifax.
