First out of the Gate

pride at sail2Friends, this image is a bit surreal, but the ship was very far out and tested my long lens.  Today was the start of the Tall Ship Challenge Race from Duluth to Whitefish Point across the Lake Superior.  Four days are allotted to cover the over 300 miles on the water.  The Pride of Baltimore was first across the start line at noon today, and she has all her sails up trying to catch the wind.  The wind was very slight today and some of the heavier ships were having difficulty getting some momentum.  til Tomorrow MJ

Tall Ship Parade

pride 2013Friends, this ship was the first tall ship to enter the Duluth Harbor yesterday in the Parade of Tall Ships.  She is the Pride Of Baltimore and that is written on the yellow flag flying from the top of her mast.  Jim and I were able to ride aboard this ship in 2010 and she is truly a very fast ship.  You can see in this image that she leans away from the wind when her sails are full. Love the tall ships. til Tomorrow MJ
