Tall Ship Preview

The Plain Dealer reported, rather inaccurately, that one of the "Tall Ships" would be visiting Cleveland on Wednesday, the 16th. Actually two just sailed into Cleveland at about 4 o'clock or so. They arrived from the East and were visible from Wildwood State park to the 55th Street Marina area. The last I saw of them, they were holed up at the Lakeside Yacht Club, a "members only" establishment, behind a chain link fence. So, they'll rest there overnight and probably party till dawn and then wake up and proceed to shoot their cannons off in Cleveland Harbor. Follow up links are: Channel 5's story and the home page of these two ships is here.

  1. Okay, mystery solved! The two ships I spotted were replicas of the Nina and Pinta, Christopher Columbus caravels! I don't know where the Santa Maria is, but the first two will be in Lorain, Ohio this weekend and can be boarded and toured for a fee.
