April 13, 2023 - Amazing scenes of three tall ships ... Elissa, Pride of Baltimore 2, and Glenn L. Swetman ... transiting the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Galveston, Texas during Tall Ships Challenge Galveston 2023 that also involved the Nao Santa Maria and Ernestina-Morrissey.

Top - Elissa, an 1877 three-masted square-rigged iron barque, that the Galveston Historical Foundation brought from a scrap yard in Piraeus Harbor. The the rare, historic vessel was then restored and transformed from 1978 to 1982  into a floating museum that now welcomes over 40,000 visitors annually.

Bottom Right - Pride of Baltimore 2, a square-topsail schooner that is the reconstruction of an early 19th-century Baltimore Clipper, right, and , transit Galveston Channel during Tall Ships Challenge Galveston 2023. Pride of Baltimore 2 is Maryland’s working symbol of the great natural resources and spectacular beauty of the Chesapeake Bay region and a reminder of America’s rich maritime heritage. Pride of Baltimore II’s mission is to educate the public on Maryland’s maritime history, tradition and commerce opportunities.

Bottom Left - Glenn L. Swetman, a two-masted, gaff-rigged, Biloxi Oyster Schooner, widely known as one of the "White Winged Queens" that once sailed the coast from the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s. Truly a museum without walls, every inch of Biloxi contains elements of its proud heritage and none greater than the majesty of the White Wings.

The 2023 Tall Ships Galveston festival at the Galveston Historic Seaport hosts tours of participating ships, numerous special events, sail-away excursions, music, food, and fun in a family-friendly format. The event is associated with Tall Ships America, a non-profit organization commended by Congress as The National Sail Training Organization representing the United States.
