Aboard the Godspeed: The Godspeed is a replica of a ship that sailed in 1607 to found Jamestown Settlement (and is depicted on the Virginia state quarter).
Aboard the Lynx: The Lynx is a schooner based in New Hampshire that sails with students teaching American history. In fact, there was one student aboard who was staying on the whole summer and was headed to Newport, RI next.
Aboard the Chickahominy: The Chickahominy sails for humanitarian missions (they were in Haiti after the earthquake and New Orleans after Katrina) and hauls weapons/supplies for the Navy.
Other ships that we didn't tour: Enduring Freedom, and the Spirit of Bermuda.
It was a pretty cool event and a great excuse to be outside all day! I'm glad we ended up hearing about it in time :)
