Join us in welcoming PRIDE OF BALTIMORE II home from her two month, 2,700+ nautical mile summer voyage on Saturday, July 1. PRIDE II participated in Sail Training International's Rendez-Vous 2017, taking part in three large tall ship festivals, visiting ports on the East Coast and in Bermuda, welcoming thousands of visitors on board, and winning two races.
You are invited to come out & see PRIDE make her grandstand homecoming sail into Baltimore's iconic Inner Harbor!
PRIDE II will be escorted into Baltimore Harbor by the Baltimore City Fire Department’s fire boat #1, JOHN R. FRAZIER, a Moran Towing tug boat, & schooner SUMMER WIND. PRIDE II will sail past Fort McHenry National Monument & Historic Shrine & proceed into the Inner Harbor with cannons blazing.
