Two of the world’s most majestic three-masted tall ships will be in Maine’s Portland Harbor this weekend, August 5 and 6, 2017, on what just happens to be the anniversary of the founding of the United States Coast Guard, according to an article on PressHerald.com.

Known as “America’s Tall Ship,” the Coast Guard’s 295-foot barque USS Eagle is scheduled to dock at Portland’s Ocean Terminal on. Friday. The Eagle will be joined Saturday morning by another tall ship – the 200-foot sail-training ship SSV Oliver Hazard Perry, which was moored off Fort Allen Park Thursday night. Both ships will be open for free, public tours throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday.
