Crewmember Stephanie Farra took some great photos of her shipmates and Baltimore. Check out her Flickr photo set. Shown above is a crew night out at Bertha’s Restaurant & Bar in the Fell’s Point neighborhood, where visiting crews received a 20% discount. Thanks Bertha’s! The food and service were terrific.
Update 9/22: Stephanie also created a beautiful photo essay on her blog. See it here.

Baltimore update: Gazela at the 200th anniversary of the Star-Spangled Banner

baltimore_tripFrom Lisa via the Guild Newsletter:

Gazela will be taking a trip to Baltimore in September as part of the Star-Spangled Spectacular, a huge, multi-day celebration to mark the 200th anniversary of the writing of the Star Spangled Banner. Gazela is going to be playing an important role in this event, as she will be serving as the backdrop/centerpiece of this event, so from now until early September we will be working hard to get her ready for her appearance in Baltimore, and we will need as many hands as we can get to help out with this, even those who do not intend to sail.

Right now the dates that we are working with are the 8th -18th of September; the ship would be leaving on the 9th, arriving on the 10th, staying in Baltimore until at least the morning of the 16th, and arriving back in Philadelphia on the 17th or 18th. Even though the ship is not projected to leave until the 9th, all crew who are sailing on the trip down will need to be on the ship on the evening the 8th to help ensure that both the ship and her crew are ready to get underway.

Fireworks onboard Gazela Primeiro at Penn’s Landing

Avoid the crowds and enjoy front row seats and a great view of the River from the decks of Tall Ship Gazela on July 5th at 7 p.m.

The fireworks will be launched from a barge in the middle of the Delaware River, just a few hundred yards from Gazela’s deck. You will be able to hear the synchronized soundtracks for the fireworks from speakers on the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing.

You may bring your own refreshments and will have full use of the private and clean heads (that’s boat talk for bathroom!) onboard.

Proceeds benefit the Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild. Advance tickets can be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets for $20 each, $15 for members, plus service fee.
