A YouTube user uploaded an aerial video of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, which includes views of the visiting Gazela from above! She can be seen on the left a few times in the first minute of the video. Also included are some good shots of the Argentine Navy ship Libertad, Baltimore’s own Constellation, as well as the other ships and sights of the harbor.
Tickets are now on sale to watch the Penn’s Landing fireworks show from the deck of Tall Ship Gazela. The fireworks will be launched from a barge in the middle of the Delaware River, just a few hundred yards from Gazela‘s deck. This event could sell out, so don’t delay!

A huge thank you goes out to everyone who pitched in to assemble the rig and make crane day on May 15 at the Navy Yard a success. By the end of the day, the masts were re-stepped and the ship was moved back to Penn’s Landing.
The task of attaching and tuning the standing rigging, as well us sending up the spars, prepping and painting, and a myriad of other tasks to get her ship-shape is underway.
