On Thursday, May 3, 2012, historic Tall Ships will sail into Savannah’s Riverfront. It will be a memorable experience for everyone fortunate enough to be there.
The Tall Ships will be open for viewing and touring Friday May 4 through Sunday, May 6. Many fun activities are planned, including the singing of Sea Shanties, Stilt Walkers, Story Telling, and Pirate Raids. A high point of the whole weekend (for those of us stuck on land) will come Monday, May 7, when the ships leave port in a fabulous Parade of Sail.
Several of the Tall Ships will motor up the Savannah River during their stay, taking some lucky passengers with them. These sailings are scheduled to take place several times a day on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. It is sure to be a thrilling experience.
As of now, 14 Tall Ships are scheduled to be in Savannah in early May. They were built in France, Nova Scotia, England, and the United States. Some were built to fight, some were built to be in the movies. All are beautiful to behold, especially when under sail.
Guests of our Savannah Vacation Homes will see the Tall Ships sail into Savannah. As of this writing, there is still availability for May 6 and 7, 2012. Take the opportunity, and come watch the Tall Ship Parade of Sail.
