June 22, 2015
The Ellesworth American reports that the Castine Yacht Club and the town of Castine, Maine, will be visited by the replica 18th century French frigate Hermione, on July 14 and 15. The original Hermione carried the Marquis de Lafayette from France to America in 1780, bringing news of French support for the American Revolution. The “new” Hermione is currently cruising along the Atlantic Coast on her way to Lunenberg, Nova Scotia. She will stop in Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City, Greenport (NY), Newport and Boston before arriving in Castine.
