That great Sail Boston photograph you saw (besides those from GMG) or article you read was taken from the Mystic. The talent they bustled about Boston Harbor among the Sail Boston Tall Ships included journalists like the one that shared this photo back to them.

7 seasJoin us June 16th as we set sail to view the Tall Ships lined up outside of Boston harbor, in position for The Sail Boston Parade of Sail.

For the first time since 2000, the Tall Ships are visiting Boston! On the evening of June 16th the ships will be at anchor just outside Boston harbor awaiting the “Grand Parade of Sail” the next morning. This is your oppotunity to view these beautiful ships as they were meant to be: At sea! With any luck, you will also get to enjoy viewing the ships as they are illuminated by the brilliant colors of sunset which, thanks to the time of the year, isn’t until 8:23PM.This is a rare opportunity to peacefully view the Tall Ships away from the crowds and traffic jams of the city. So we hope you will join us for this special cruise to the Tall Ships in June!

Calling all photographers: This may be the most famous photograph from the Tall Ships in Boston Harbor 1976. Can someone line up the Boston skyline and feature the Adventure during Sail Boston 2017?

DAMN PIRATES!

You Just Can’t Trust em’!

Unfortunately the Boston Based Pirate Ship The Formidable sailed into Gloucester HarborEarly Saturday Morning Under The American Flag,While the Sentries at Stage Fort Park were Asleep.

In these Photos you can see these Scalley Wags planning evil.

It looks like their first Victim was a cooler full of Grog in the Cruiseport Parking lot.

KEEP ON THE LOOK OUT!

Your Cooler could be Next!

The Pirates were unaware they were being spied upon.

The Crew Of The Urania

These guys are having WAYYYYYY too much fun!

The Crew Of The Urania, originally uploaded by captjoe06.

The Urania is off to SailBoston.   The ship is part of the Dutch Navy. She has a main crew of a couple men and then a rotating crew that hops aboard in each port from the ranks of the Dutch Navy.  From what I understand it is a honor to be able to get the chance to serve.
Video with the crew coming at 8AM

SailGloucester Update From Linn Parisi

Hi Joey,
We were going out on the Lannon again this afternoon to see ships underway towards Boston– but the ships decided to stay in port another day.
Just got a heads up from Kay w/ the Lannon that the Picton Castle may leave Gloucester under sail tomorrow morning between 6:30 and 7A.
The Europa sneaked in to the state pier after the Tecla came in last night.
One ship just left the harbor to go to Boston- not sure which, but we’re going down to check it out.
It’s all good!
