The Amistad In Noank

If only every morning started out this way. I just returned to the docks following my morning ritual of newspapers, coffee, and walking, when I saw the two masted schooner. It was the Amistad, a recreation of the eighteenth century ship made famous in the 1997 film starring Morgan Freeman. It was an impressive sight. The Amistad had just undergone repairs at Mystic Seaport, and was preparing to sail north to the Canadian Maritimes for the summer of 2008. In 2007, the ship embarked on a transAtlantic voyage that included stops in England, West Africa, and the Caribbean. Her home port is New Haven. More information on the Amistad, including an itinerary, can be found here. Amistad In Noank Web Album
