Tall Ship Alabama Returns to Newburyport, MA
July 20, 2011
Newburyport News: It’s been more than a century since tall ships were a regular sight on the city’s shoreline.
But this summer, residents and visitors to the Clipper City will be treated to a weeklong visit from a grand schooner similar to the ones built on Newburyport‘s riverfront during Colonial times.
The Alabama is aiming to be in Newburyport the week before Labor Day as part of a tour along the coast that will also include stops in Gloucester and Provincetown, said Alabama crewmember Ross Cottrell.
