Pride of Baltimore II, America’s Star-Spangled Ambassador, finishes her season with an event of international proportions on Wednesday, November 4, as Pride will rendezvous with the HNoMS Statsraad Lehmkuhl, the largest Tall Ship (332 feet) to visit Baltimore this year! Captains of both vessels will meet near the Key Bridge at 9 a.m. as Pride escorts Statsraad Lehmkuhl to the Inner Harbor by 10 am.
“We’re glad that Statsraad Lehmkuhl has chosen to visit Baltimore, a city known for its maritime heritage,” says Rick Scott, Executive Director, Pride of Baltimore, Inc.
On September 22, 2015, Statsraad Lehmkuhl embarked on a 6-week voyage from her home port of Bergen, Norway to Baltimore, Maryland. Statsraad Lehmkuhl sailed across the North Sea, through the English Channel and into the Atlantic, stopping over in Bermuda.
