Tall Ships of OpSail 2012: June 12

Despite the high seas, blowing winds, and rain showers, we ventured out into the Bay to see the tall ships of OpSail 2012 sailing up to Baltimore Tuesday evening.  The USCG  Eagle awaited their arrival at the mouth of the Potomac while the USCG Shearwater escorted them up the Bay.  The ships did not disappoint as we were fortunate enough to cruise right alongside 6 of them!  An awesome sight!

The Pride of Baltimore II, 157′

Guayas of Ecuador, 257′

Dewaruci of Indonesia, 191′

Cuauhtemoc of Mexico, 270′

Gazela of USA, 177′

We were fortunate to have good friends and good food aboard in honor of OpSail2012!
