As always there is a lot going on in the Little Big Town (Charleston, SC). This post shows the Tall Ships® Exhibition which took place May 18, 2017 to May 21, 2017 (Thurs-Sunday). I will keep it short and let the Pictures speak for me. The event was the inaugural showing here in Charleston and it benefits 4 maritime educational charities: Charleston Community Sailing, The Lowcountry Maritime Society, The Spirit of South Carolina and Warrior Sailing. Feel free to look up any of the charities if you have interest in becoming a member and/or donating. They travel around the world to show off these beautiful ships while also educating their attendees about what it takes to navigate these ships and keep them maintained.

There were 10 ships if my count is correct. The ships were built as early as 1918 to more recent 2011. Each has a story to tell which is too long for this little post, so again, feel free to look into joining the newsletters for any of the ships to get more information. Some of my favorites were:
- El Galeon - Pirate looking ship (built 2009, but a replica from the 16th and 17th centuries)
- Alexander von Humboldt II - The green one.....very large and beautiful
- When An If - Commissioned by General George S. Patton in 1939
- Pride of Baltimore II - Reproduction of the 1812-era topsail schooner privateer
As always, I love referrals. You can check into my Reviews from past clients. I am happy to assist you or anyone you know that needs to buy or sale a home.
