Thread Name: Tall Ships Parade/Festival, pro/con???
Subject: RE: Tall Ships Parade/Festival, pro/con???
Erick, I talked yesterday with Paul from Clearwater, he didn't know about the Tall Ships, never mind the dates So he's now awear & he's gonna let his people know to see if they might be able to piggy back the 2 events. Prior is not likely seeing that it's a race to Boston but maybe prior to Halifax (even though that's a race too) they can attract a few ships. He says that it's not likely that the Clearwater will be joining the fleet though. I don't know about John on the Mystic Whaler, he may be on the Hudson too, although he could probably squeeze in both. We'll see what he's up to at Mystic if he makes it this yr. I see you there if you're going?

Hi Tom, I'll be onboard singing again, it's always a blast but as small an event as Portsmouth is it's got more of the culture & music going on than the whole shebang in Boston. I'd love to see Boston's event take some pride in it's history & showcase it's past. After all, some of the naval battles fought during the Revolutionary War were seen from the shore & beaches of Boston area & were sung about & with Old Ironsides shitting in the center of it all you'd think that there would be at least a little of the 'Limelight' would be shinning on her.
