STEVENSVILLE, MD. - Battleships, tall ships and some that are even 200 years old took the long, slow journey from Baltimore's Inner Harbor down the Chesapeake Bay.
They have tall masts and vintage sails, some even say they look like something out of a movie.
"It's a once in a lifetime event, the ships are coming from Baltimore, it's the eight ships from 1812 and they are from all around the world," said Loraine Moore of Grasonville.
We found people of all ages with binoculars and cameras in hand. They were perched on the shore ready to watch these ships sail right before their eyes. Mary Shepherd of Grasonville even called out of work for a chance to take this in.
"I went through great lengths to see this because I won't get to enjoy this or see this again," said Shepherd.
Carolyn Corbin drover over three hours to see the 18 tall ships. She says there is no way she could miss it. "This is kind of my passion, I love sailing especially tall ship sailing," said Corbin of York, Pa.
Some ships are over 200 years old but even if you are not familiar with their history, these ships will certainly steal your attention.
"Everybody can enjoy it on different levels, especially the kids they are always like "it's a pirate ship", I think I have a different interest in it but I don't think anyone has less of appreciation for these things," said Corbin.
