And so it begins

Posted by Tall Ships America on May 3, 2012

It’s been a wild day here at the Savannah TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE(r) that started with Jennifer and I blearily making our way to the two French naval vessels La Belle Poule and Etoile at 5:45am. We had been tasked with catching their lines and as we made our way over to the dock, we were greated by a hive of activity. The ships had arrived ahead of schedule and the crew was busily getting the ships ready for visitors. The ships had come in cruising up the river at about 10 knots on the incoming tide, so they had made some pretty good time. Undeterred, we snapped a few photos of the ships as the sun rose –

Next up, we delivered TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE(r) ship banners, flags, pins and crew badges to the vessels. Lynx really liked theirs –

Then Dewaruci thought they’d bring out the band –

It’s been a pretty full day and the festival officially opens tomorrow at 10am. Whew!! Stay tuned for more updates….
