The Annapolis Up Rigging Festival is kicking off today, on Friday, the 13th of May! It’s a lucky day for those who come on down to Susan Campbell Park to see the tall ships as they anchor at the City Dock. In addition to seeing these majestic sailing vessels, today kicks off a weekend of food, art, craft demonstrations, and live music in Downtown Annapolis. Visit Annapolis says that all events are free and provides this list of tall ships that are participating:
- Pride of Baltimore II, a 1988 replica Schooner (155’)
- Lynx, a 2001 replica Schooner (122’)
- Easterner, a 1958 Sloop (65.4’)
- Adventurer, a 1984 Cherubini Schooner (56’)
Several boat tour groups in and around downtown Annapolis have on-the-water tours available for those wishing to get out on the water. Find out more here.
