TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE(r) Atlantic Coast 2015 Series: An Update

Posted by Tall Ships America on March 2, 2015

There has been so much happening around Tall Ships America HQ! It’s amazing how productive one can be when one is buried under 15 feet of snow.

The biggest news is that we’ve added two new ports to TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Atlantic Coast 2015 Series – Cape Charles, VA (June 13-14) and Portland, ME (July 18-20). More information is available, including participating vessels, on our website.

We also had a conference in Philadelphia and there were lots of pictures. Here is one of our 2014 summer intern Halcyon accepting the Perry Bowl on behalf of Tole Mour. Read about her experience during the race from San Pedro to San Diego .

Bert and I were asked to speak at the U.S. Sailing conference in New Orleans in January. Bert spoke on how tall ships and community sailing centers, and other U. S. Sailing members, can work together to get more youth on the water. We had a wonderful time in New Orleans, experiencing the food, music and amazing culture of a very unique city.

Next up, planning for our annual attaché reception and getting ready to go on the road to see some tall ships!
