Tall Ship: Pride of Baltimore II @ CBMM

CBMM_PrideofBaltimoreVisitThe tall ship Pride of Baltimore II will be at CBMM on Friday, August 11, and remain dockside along CBMM’s campus through August 13, with deck tours offered from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily.

In 1988, Pride of Baltimore II was commissioned as a sailing memorial to her immediate predecessor, the original Pride of Baltimore, which sank in 1986 due to a white squall off Puerto Rico. Both ships were built in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor as reproductions of 1812-era topsail schooners, or Baltimore Clippers, which helped America win the War of 1812 and finally secure its freedom.
