Pride of Bal­ti­more II due back at In­ner Har­bor to­day

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND NATION & WORLD -

The Pride of Bal­ti­more II will re­turn to the In­ner Har­bor to­day from a four-month, 8,000-mile jour­ney up the East Coast to the Great Lakes. The ship, known as Bal­ti­more’s “Star-Span­gled Am­bas­sador,” made its way up the coast, rounded Hal­i­fax and took the St. Lawrence Se­away to the Great Lakes, where it com­peted in sail­ing races in each of the lakes — and won two of the five. “Our mis­sion this sum­mer was mix­ing busi­ness with plea­sure,” mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor Laura Ro­dini said. “Not only were we wel­com­ing tens of thou­sands of peo­ple onto our deck, but we were fos­ter­ing busi­ness in Mary­land.” For those in­ter­ested in see­ing the his­toric ship sail into the har­bor, it will be pass­ing Fort McHenry about 12:30 p.m., and will dock at the Broad­way pier in Fells Point at 2 p.m., Ro­dini said. The deck will be open for tours. At 6 p.m., the Bal­ti­more Rock Opera So­ci­ety will do a “pi­rate takeover” and sing a song from the ship’s deck, Ro­dini said.
