A first for Pride of Baltimore 2

Posted by Tall Ships America on December 12, 2011

Pride of Baltimore 2

This time of year, the main topic of conversation for many of the tall ships and crew is “winter maintenance”. It’s the time between November and March that the organizations need help to get the ship ready for another round of sail training. At the end of each sailing season, the boat is  hauled out and worked over, top to bottom, usually by a small group of crew and dedicated volunteers. Being a volunteer in this process earns you a rare glimpse into the inner workings of a traditional sail training vessel and a chance to work closely with the crew.

Now you can have an opportunity to work with the crew of Pride of Baltimore 2 as they work on the ship this winter to get her ready for the the 2012 summer events.
