Rocking the River Street

Posted by Tall Ships America on May 4, 2012

The first day of the Savannah TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE(r) is officially over (as of five minutes ago) and we have hit our stride. The first day we shake out any issues and by the second day, it’s smoooooth sailing. Here are a few photos from the event today-

New recruits

We had a group of Montessori kids tour the vessels and they were very impressed with the rigging and mast on Bounty.

Opening Ceremony

Patti Lock spoke a few words at the opening ceremony, only to be upstaged by the arrival of the USCG Barque Eagle as she sailed up the river to join the rest of the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE(r) fleet.

Ships along the river

In the photo above that is Peacemaker, Bounty, Sir Martin II and Dewaruci. We were once again lucky enough to see the Dewaruci band perform during their  daily crew parade at 4pm. They refuse to disappoint.

Dewaruci’s Crew Parade

It has been so great to catch up with old friends and the crew here has been loving Savannah. People couldn’t be nicer and are so interested in the ships and their stories. We have two more festival days and then Monday is the Parade of Sail. It will be hard to leave lovely Savannah.
