Join 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?
A very special thank you to Jeff Amero for sharing his awesome party location!
See Marty’s post yesterday for more information about the Picton Castle.

The Lannon is such a well maintained and comfortable boat. A work of art really.

This morning I’m taking off on the Spirit of Massachusetts for an overnight trip into Boston to view the Tall Ships. I’m as excited as a little kid. This has been a dream I’ve had forever- to sail on a schooner and be part of the daily activities that happen on board.
I will try to post from the boat or at least have Joey post for me. Of course I’ll be shooting like crazy and I might be able to upload the photos to Joey!
It will be my 60th year adventure! See you when we get back tomorrow!

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!
