Four down, two to go

Posted by Tall Ships America on August 2, 2010

It’s a quiet Monday evening here in Duluth. There are still a few ships in the harbor doing day sails but the vendors are gone and the crowds have dwindled to a few curious onlookers. Last night we announced the winners of the second leg of the Race to Save the Lakes during the crew party generously hosted by Visit Duluth. Race two started off of Tawas Point last Monday night (read about the start here). The ships raced 121 nautical miles to the north end of Lake Huron and finished by Drummond Island. On elapsed time, Pride of Baltimore 2 crossed the finish line about 13 hours ahead of Pathfinder. But, since the ships are handicapped to ensure a fair race, on corrected time Pride beat Pathfinder by 45 mintues to come in first.

 Tomorrow Samara and Libby sail out on Roald Amundsen and Becca will be back on Denis Sullivan. Next stop, Green Bay!
