U.S. Navy Tall Ships Gives Tours in Freeport

Five U.S. Navy tall ships sailed into Freeport this week, carrying dozens of Naval Academy students in an annual summer tradition. This weekend, the U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen will explore the Village of Freeport, which has hosted a naval squadron for 19 years. The ships — 44 feet long and more than 60 feet tall — left Annapolis Monday morning with 40 students and 10 coaches and docked in Freeport on Thursday morning. Thursday morning, Freeport Mayor Robert Kennedy, local veterans and residents welcomed the midshipmen at the Woodcleft Avenue Esplanade, their vessels resting in the Woodcleft Canal. Midshipmen will be giving tours of their boats Friday and Saturday before leaving for Annapolis on Sunday morning.
