Fall River Celebrates America

The ship participated once again in the festivities of Fall River Celebrates America. Thursday evening we had a gentle sail with Mayor Ed Lambert and friends on the Taunton River, which allowed us to cool off from the heat wave.

The Parade of Sail was canceled on Friday due to the impending frontal passage so the sight of the day was the arrival of the USCG Barque Eagle.

Saturday we hosted an open ship to over 600 people and in the evening sailed with a group form a local company Genzyme and remained dockside for a fantastic firework display.

Captain: Amanda Madeira
Program Coordinator: Crista Mellican

We would like to thank Lotus and IBM for donation of software, hardware and funding to enable regular electronic updates from the ship.
