Tall Ships arriving in San Diego

Tuesday, July 13, 1999 saw the arrival of 14 tall ships that had sailed down the coast of California. The photo above, shows 5 of the tall ships in the harbor along with dozens of small boats that turned out to meet them.

This is the USS Eagle, which is crewed entirely by teen-age Scouts. It is an ex-US Coast Guard ship.

The ariel photos below were taken about 4 miles west of Point Loma from about 800 MSL in a Grumman Tiger, piloted by Gary Morris, ariel photos by Erin Scott. The Star of India is the one with the red stripe along the waterline.
