The Day: With its extensive repairs just about complete, the schooner Amistad is set to depart Mystic Seaport within the next week or so for New London, where its 6-man crew, including new captain Tucker Yarrow, will spend time training.

Len Miller of Essex, the chairman of Discovering Amistad, the new nonprofit organization running the ship, said the ship’s new engine and sails have been installed and other repairs completed.

The educational program also has been completed and school groups are signing up to visit the ship this fall.
