Christopher Cross has nothing on the sailing you can see in Lake Michigan coming up.
The Tall Ships Challenge is an annual event around the Great Lakes, where sailing ships of all kinds ply the Great Lakes and visit various ports. It's Lake Michigan's turn right now, and nine of these magnificent vessels were just in the Port of Green Bay this past weekend. This past Monday night, I managed to head up to Sturgeon Bay after work and get some nice shots of these ships as part of my work on my road trip website StateTrunkTour.com, and thought I'd share them with you.
The ships made their way to Algoma for a lunch event today (Tuesday) and will reach Kenosha by Wednesday night. They'll moor there for a while in Kenosha's lakefront and HarborPark area for the Kenosha Tall Ships event, which runs Thursday through Sunday. The riggings and sails and design of these ships, plus the work it takes to sail it, is really impressive. And you'll be able to check out the ships and even take a ride on some! I highly suggest you check it out. Have fun!
