First Tall Ship of the Summer Arrives in Boston Harbor

The Spanish tall ship, Juan Sebastian De Elcano, arrived on a rainy Monday through Boston Harbor. The four-mast topsail schooner is the 3rd largest Tall Ship in the world. It will make its way to Charlestown Navy Yard for public tours starting Tuesday and throughout the week.

Soon to follow on July 10th will be the Portuguese Navy ship, Sagres, coming to Fan Pier and the French Hermione to Rowes Wharf on July 11th.. Coinciding with the July arrivals will be the Queen Mary 2  complete with a fireworks show on July 12th.
