Tall ships sail through region

After drawing crowds and plently of fanfare in Buffalo last weekend, some of the tall ships came through our region — though not close to shore. These photos were provided by Scott Foley and Susan Royal. At top is a photo of Muirgen “The Pride of Dunkirk” and the “Pride of Baltimore” off the city on Tuesday afternoon. The Muirgen is a 1927 John G. Alden yawl restored and kept in Dunkirk. At right is the Pride of Baltimore. These tall ships were headed to Cleveland for an event that began Thursday and continues

through Sunday celebrating Cleveland’s

maritime history.
