Photographer's Note

The event is Sail Boston 209. About 40 Sailing ships participated and of them 5 or 6 were the fully rigged ships we typically call square riggers. The link will take you to the official web site that lists the ships by name and explains the classifications of them.

What amazed me the most was the turn out of people. Americans turn out to sports events and drinking events in droves but they also came out to see these magnificent machines of an age gone by, it was worth the trip and I am always heartened when the viewers are so well mannered as during this event.
