This is an offshore cruise where the ship will be underway, out of sight of land for multiple days in a row. We intend to make the best possible speed bound for Charleston. You'll have a once in a lifetime opportunity to join the crew and help sail a working tall ship offshore! The ship will sail as much as possible, but will motor if necessary to maintain the schedule. May 7, 2011: Join the ship in Nassau, the Bahamas between 12:00pm and 3:00pm. We plan to set sail this evening, weather dependent. We expect to arrive in Charleston on May 18th, however, if we don't make as good a time, we may not arrive until the 19th. If you plan to disembark in Charleston, you will either want to book a last minute flight when we arrive in Charleston, or if you prefer to book in advance, we suggest booking a flight on the 20th in the afternoon.

Nassau, Bahamas
Nassau is the modern-day face of the Bahamas. Much of it's atmosphere comes from development during the so-called Loyalist period from 1787 to 1834, when many of the city's finest colonial buildings were built.

After alternating periods of decline and prosperity in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the spike in trade and construction that followed World War II led directly to Nassau's emergence as a global center for tourism and finance.


Charleston, South Carolina
Charleston is a notable tourist destination, with streets lined with grand live oaks draped with Spanish moss. Along the waterfront are many beautiful and historic pastel-colored homes. The city is also an important port, boasting the second largest container seaport on the East Coast and the fourth largest container seaport in North America.

As an old colonial city, Charleston has a wide variety of museums and historical attractions. The Old Exchange and Customs House in downtown Charleston, finished in 1771, is arguably the third most important Colonial building in the nation (behind Faneuil Hall in Boston, Massachusetts and Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania). The building features a dungeon which held various signers of the Declaration of Independence, and also hosted events for George Washington in 1791, and the ratification of the U.S. Constitution in 1788. It has also served as a U.S. post office, the first Confederate post office, and was used by the U.S. Coast Guard.

Charleston is the location of Fort Moultrie, which was instrumental in delivering a critical defeat to the British in the American Revolutionary War, and Fort Sumter, the reputed site of the "first shot" of the American Civil War. Patriot's Point, located across the river in nearby Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, is also home to the USS Yorktown as well as several other naval vessels. There are also several former plantations in the area, including Boone Hall Plantation, Drayton Hall, Magnolia Plantation, and Middleton Place. Charleston's premier art museum is the Gibbes Museum of Art, one of the country's oldest art organizations and home to over 10,000 works of fine art. Also the Charleston Museum was the first Museum in the Americas.
