JULY 1ST-4TH

Festival of Tall Ships - Voyage of L'Hermione

Twenty years ago, a small group dreamed of reconstructing an exact replica of General Lafayette’s 18th-century ship called the Hermione. Today, the majestic vessel is the largest and most authentically built Tall Ship in the last 150 years. The Hermione has set sail in France, launching an adventure that comes to the USA in the summer of 2015 for an unprecedented voyage.

From July 1st thru 4th L’Hermione will be docked at Pier 15 at the South Street Seaport. And on July 3rd the Lower Manhattan Historical Society will be hosting a patriotic parade for all the people through the historic streets of Lower Manhattan beginning at the South Street Seaport and marching to Bowling Green for their flag raising ceremony. Festivities will begin at 11am.

For a limited time this 495-ton wooden replica of a Spanish galleon will be joining Hornblower’s fleet for 8 days only in July - down at Pier 15 in the South Street Seaport.

About El Galeón
El Galeón is a 170-foot, 495-ton, detailed wooden replica of a galleon that was part of Spain’s West Indies fleet. During the Viva Florida 500 Voyage, it will cover more than 3500 nautical miles with 28 crew members aboard, maneuvering more than 9,600 square feet of sail area, as it was done in the 16th Century. The ship is owned by the Nao Victoria Foundation of Seville, Spain.

El Galeón began its historic Viva Florida 500 Voyage in Spain and stopped in Puerto Rico, where Ponce de León once was governor. The ship’s Florida route was similar to the one Ponce de León sailed 500 years ago, and the crew is using the navigational technology of that era.

Ponce de León’s arrival in Florida in April 1513 marked the beginning of a European presence in what is now the U.S. mainland. He also is credited with discovering the Gulf Stream, which led to development of the early trade routes between Spain and the Americas.
