Day’s Run – June 25, 2015

From dawn till dusk today was the crew working on getting the ship into top shape during the morning then pulled together wonderfully to take part in the Parade of Sails at approx 13:30. We had the distinction of being one of the only ships to actually set all sails during the parade. Coming alongside the docks on the Philly side we had a crowd of people watching our every move. I can only imagine how many photos were taken of the lot of us. Once the last sail was stowed we went directly into set up mode for the reception being held on board from 7-10pm. Port watch was on for the night and they did a wonderful job making sure our guests were safe while aboard. The party was a rounding success despite the pesky rain.
