Speed Over Ground: 1.0 KT

Posted by Tall Ships America on April 10, 2014

It’s a car! It’s a truck! It’s…Spirit of Massachusetts? sailboat crossing

Spirit of Massachusetts made headlines yesterday when she was transported down the city streets of Portland’s East End. Just past dawn on Wednesday morning, the 125-ft schooner was moved from the former Gowan Yard in Portland, Maine to the new Portland Yacht Services shipyard, where she will undergo an extensive restoration. Having sailed over 300,000 nautical miles on the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, Ocean Classroom Foundation‘s Spirit of Massachusetts can now add Commercial Street to her résumé.

The video of Spirit of Massachusetts‘ journey through Portland is reminiscent of another video from 2012, which depicts the trek of the space shuttle Endeavour down the streets of Los Angeles…slow, calculated, and conspicuous.
