Baylake Bank Tall Ship Festival Continues Taking Shape

Baylake Bank Tall Ship FestivalExcitement is growing as the dates get closer for the Baylake Bank Tall Ship Festival!

So far, the ship line-up for the festival includes Appledore IV, S/V Denis Sullivan, Hindu, Brig Niagara, and Windy.

Appledore IV is an 85' gaff rigged schooner which serves as a floating classroom focused on marine science and ecology education.

Denis Sullivan is a 137' schooner and Wisconsin's flagship.

Hindu is a 79' schooner which has lived many lives including that of serving as a pleasure yacht, sailing to trade spices in India, watching the coast as a World War II defense ship, and operating as a charter vessel.

The 198' Brig Niagara is a reconstruction of the warship aboard which Oliver Hazard Perry won the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812.

Windy is 148' sparred length, and is the first certified four-masted traditional sailing vessel built in the U.S.A. since 1921.

Festival dates are August 16-18, 2013 from 9am-5pm, plus riverfront concerts Friday and Saturday nights from 6pm-9pm. Tickets are $12 for adults, and $10 for children ages 5-12 as well as seniors 62 and over. The tickets provide one-day admission to the whole event, which includes ship tours, family activities, educational programming, a vendor fair, food court, and beer garden. Tickets for the evening concerts are $5.

Additionally, 75 to 90 minute day sails aboard Appledore IV, Hindu, or Windy, are available for $60.
