Day Sails Conclude
Monday was the final day for Day Sails/Cannon Battles. The events were a huge success.
The Lynx arrival for this week's Festival of Sail was delayed
due to a broken jibboom suffered when a 40 knot gust struck the vessel as
she was enroute to the start of the Tallship parade in San Francisco.
The vessel will be at Berth 73 Sunday, Monday and Tuesday morning, and will participate in Cannon Battles Monday at 2:30 PM and 5:00 PM.
Following the Festival, Lynx will lead a group of 15 tall ships in a special September 11th Memorial Service at Newport Beach. Read more about it here.
