After being docked on Green Bay’s Fox River over the weekend, nine vessels have their bows pointed toward the Door Peninsula. The Nicolet Bank Tall Ships Festival pulled into Sturgeon Bay late Monday afternoon before they are set to depart for Algoma Tuesday morning ahead of their challenge race to Kenosha. Having the ships docked along the waterway overnight presents a tremendous opportunity for people to connect to the Great Lakes’ sailing history according to Door County Maritime Museum deputy director Sam Perlman.
After mustering around Sherwood Point, the nine vessels of the Nicolet Bank Tall Ships Festival fleet are docked at locations near the Door County Maritime Museum, Stone Harbor Resort, Centerpointe Yacht Services, Graham Park, and Sawyer Park. You can find a full listing of activities leading up to their 8 a.m. Tuesday departure online with this story.
