The Tall Ships return to Boston

The first tall ship arrived in Boston yesterday amidst fog, rain and thunderstorms. Today's weather is not that much better. To add insult to injury, the traditional Grand Parade of Sail is not happening this year due to budget woes.

But don't worry. You can still enjoy the Grand Parade of Sail by watching the video clip below. That was when the tall ships last visited Boston. In July 2000. Enjoy...


Read about all the ships participating in this year's Tall Ships Atlantic Challenge which began in Vigo, Spain. After stopping in the port of Boston, the fleet will race to Halifax, Nova Scotia, after which they will head for their final destination in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
