See the Pride of Baltimore in St. Michaels this summer
August 11 @ 9:00 am - August 13 @ 12:00 pm
Three replica tall ships will visit the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in the Town of St. Michaels, Maryland., in 2017, bringing with them the opportunity for CBMM guests to learn more about international and American maritime history.
“We can’t wait for these ships to visit us this summer,” said CBMM President Kristen Greenaway. “They bring so much history to our campus, and it’s truly a delight to be able to share it with our guests.”
The Schooner Sultana was at CBMM in May and June. The Maryland Dove, Historic St. Mary’s Floating Ambassador was at CBMM in July.
The tall ship Pride of Baltimore II will be at CBMM on Friday, August 11, and remain dockside along CBMM’s campus through August 13, with deck tours offered from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily.
In 1988, Pride of Baltimore II was commissioned as a sailing memorial to her immediate predecessor, the original Pride of Baltimore, which sank in 1986 due to a white squall off Puerto Rico. Both ships were built in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor as reproductions of 1812-era topsail schooners, or Baltimore Clippers, which helped America win the War of 1812 and finally secure its freedom.
Established in 1965, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is dedicated to preserving and exploring the history, environment, and people of the Chesapeake Bay, with values of relevancy, authenticity, and stewardship guiding its mission.
