Plimoth Plantation’s Mayflower II, a 64-year-old reproduction of the ship that brought the Pilgrims to America, has been fully restored and is slated to depart Mystic, Connecticut, on July 20 to head for Plymouth, Massachusetts.
The ship will first land in New London, where she will be docked at the City Pier for two weeks. The captain, Whit Perry, and a crew of 27 will conduct sea trials and perform sail training before the vessel is ready to head to her final destination. The ship is expected to arrive in Plymouth around August 10, where she will be available for public visitation.
