The Pride of Baltimore II is visiting New York, calling in Manhattan’s North Cove on theÂ HudsonÂ River. Â She should be arriving around mid-day today and will be staying through Sunday. Â Daysails and dockside tours will beÂ available. Â (See the schedule after the page break.)
Pride of Baltimore II is a reproduction of a Baltimore built Topsail Schooner; the sleek, maneuverable vessels used as privateers during the War of 1812. The original “pride of Baltimore”, Chasseur, defended America’s freedom by serving as an offensive weapon of war and blockade-runner. Sailing out of New York Harbor in 1814 under the command of the intrepid Captain Thomas Boyle, ChasseurÂ executed a one ship blockade of the British Isles, wreaking havoc on British merchant shipping.
