Tall Ships in Savannah

Tall Ships in Savannah

Tall Ships - PassportA gathering of tall ships is not a very common sight, but early in May 2012 Savannah hosted the Tall Ship Challenge and it was a glorious time. Some thirteen tall ships were in port. Visitors could inspect them and visit on them. Some even provided harbor tours.

Here is a selection of images from that weekend.
