Tall ship rigging – Baltimore, Maryland

Every so often, the Port of Baltimore hosts a gathering of tall ships, and they congregate into the Inner Harbor from countries all around the world. The last large gathering of tall ships was for the celebration of the War of 1812, and there were a dozen or more large sailing ships and other modern naval vessels that joined the festivities. This photo was taken during one of the on-board tours.

  1. In the days of tall sailing ships, if the sails ripped or the rigging snagged, a sailor would be sent to scramble up the mast to cut loose the ripped sail(s) or snagged rigging, often having to stand or straddle a yard arm, and, of course, no safety ropes. Most often it was done during a storm. A sailor needed a little courage too.
