This national sailing event is sponsored by Tall Ships America (the U.S. sail training association) and Mystic Seaport and the schooner Summer Wind represented Philadelphia. The Morgan, the last wooden whale ship in the world, was built in 1841 and has been painstakingly restored at Mystic Seaport. The ship spent the Summer sailing throughout New England.
