Avast ye landubbers and shutterbugs!

On Wedensday, July 23 at noon (that’s tomorrow!), a parade of 32 tall ships will pass under the Golden Gate Bridge as part of the San Francisco Festival of Sail, an event produced by the San Francisco Maritime Park Association. Special guest stars will include the USCG Eagle, a spectacular, three-mast Coast Guard training ship, and the HMS Bounty, which was built in 1960 to star in Mutiny on the Bounty, a movie about the famous British crew who overthrew Captain Bligh in order to remain in the Islands of the Pacific. (Arrrrrrrrrrr!) Prime viewing spots will include the span of the Golden Gate Bridge, Crissy Field, Fort Mason, and the Embarcadero, as the ships parade from the GGB all the way to the Bay Bridge.
