Friday, June 26: (Philadelphia/Camden) Just like yesterday, the beautiful weather has come to a grey end and has been replaced by overcast skies. Despite the encroaching storm, the band continues to play. A light breeze has been blowing off the Delaware river all day, barely enough to lift a flag. By 1300, the crowds are beginning to wind down and seek shelter from the inevitable deluge.

Saturday, June 27, 2015: (Philadelphia/Camden) The crowds are out in full force at Tall Ships® Philadelphia Camden today, despite the rain. Colorful umbrellas bob along the docks as visitors explore the tall ships that line the piers on both sides of the Delaware. Our interns are walking along the docks distributing the newly-published Tall Ships America directory to the vessels. (Purchase a copy now for only $15!) Out on the water, passengers aboard A.J. Meerwald are helping the crew to set sail. There’s lots to do despite the drizzle, so grab your rain boots and meet us down at the waterfront!

Sunday, June 28, 2015: (Philadelphia/Camden) The crews are up and getting ready on deck to open their ships for tours. After yesterday’s rain, the warm weather and sun are welcomed. For many of the ships, they are preparing to leave port tonight or tomorrow. Come by today for your last look at the tall ships in Philadelphia and Camden!
