The tall ships are coming to Savannah. Beginning Thursday, May 3 through Monday May 7th, 1012. For 5 days a collection on 14 sailing vessels will be in Savannah Harbor for the Tall Ships Challenge, a race between ports. This will be a unique opportunity to see historic ships and Navy vessels like the U.S. Coast Guard’s Barque Eagle and the HMS Bounty. This will be the only Southeaster stop on the tour. All of the ships will be seen on the Savannah’s River Stet and the promenade of Hutchinson Island. Some of the tall ships will be open to view or for daily excursions.
For those wanting more maritime experience a trip to the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum would be in order. The museum located in the beautiful Scarborough House gives it’s visitors an in-depth understanding of Atlantic trade history during the 18th and 19th centuries. The scale models on ships from the era are truly amazing. If you ever put together a model ship as a child you’ll be blown away by the detail of these exhibits. The Iron Clad was my personal favorite.
