3 Tall Ships To Visit Duluth This Summer

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Another armada of tall ships will sail into the Duluth harbor this summer.

Visit Duluth says three tall ships will visit July 15-18 for the Duluth Music and Maritime Festival.

The Pride of Baltimore II and the U.S. Brig Niagara will make return appearances. The Lynx will be in Duluth for the first time.

Duluth’s next major tall ships festival isn’t scheduled until 2013. But Gene Shaw of Visit Duluth tells the Duluth News Tribune that things fell into place to host the trio this summer.

All three ships will host Sail Aways, which take paying passengers out on Lake Superior for two or three hours. Tickets go on sale Monday.

Last summer’s tall ships event had nine ships and drew about 225,000 people to Duluth’s waterfront.

    So what makes a tall ship? They could not even give the size to us so that those of us who have no idea what they mean by “tall ship” could get an idea? I am just saying that because I have never seen anything other than a normal boat on a lake. Come on WCCO, you all should know by now how to do a report and this is not it. So doing a report on Old Yeller for example, would you say… Boy gets dog, dog gets sick, boy shoots dog? Some details would be nice and maybe a little background info would help the cause as well. If you do not need to be thorough in the stories I would like to apply for a job as a reporter. Maybe even the web editor as I have noticed there are many errors that I have seen just today.
