Merry Christmas!
My most favorite video to edit every year is the recap and I am happy to say the Providence is a big part of this years video! This is just a tease! ;)
This isn't a great picture of the Tall Ship PROVIDENCE, as she's mostly obscured from view, but I thought you might appreciate the bit of history. The picture was taken at the commissioning ceremony of the nuclear submarine USS PROVIDENCE (SSN 719) on 27 July 1985. You can see the mast of the tall ship at the end of the pier.
Downrigging Day - Go Team!
Underway for the Alexandria Parade of Lights! Dec 7, 2019
I wanted to send the Providence out with a bang, and use all the footage I managed to get of her departure. After a few years and many hours of work... is complete! Here she is departing Maine for her new home in Virginia! https://youtu.be/gfJqeBLxFSA
Thank you for the amazing trip!! We had a blast!
It has been a few days since the Adventure and Providence were together in Hampton, VA. I am still admiring the photos I took of your ship. It truly was a grand time to be your escort. Thank you, Gibbet Bones, Blackbeard's Crew/Crew on the Adventure
When do the tours start up again?
Two Ships, Two Organizations, One Mission to Preserve Maritime History and Tradition! June 27 – 29, 2019 What a truly amazing sight! Blackbeard’s Small Tall Ship Adventure and the Tall Ship Providence side by side. On behalf of Blackbeard’s Crew, Inc., Blackbeard’s Small Tall Ship Adventure, The City of Hampton and the Downtown Hampton Development Partnership We would like to congratulate the members of the Providence Foundation in the acquisition, restoration and voyage to her new homeport of Alexandria, Virginia of the Tall Ship Providence. A monumental task and a job well done! We were truly honored having an opportunity to host the Providence, its marvelous Crew and foundation members in Hampton, Virginia for a couple days as the Providence traveled to her new homeport. Even though our meeting was brief, the friendships made will last a lifetime! (Skye Boat Song by Constable Heartless) (Strike the Bell by Blackbeard's Crew) https://www.facebook.com/263708573706331/videos/2429372483949203/
Are you underway?
Thank you Tall Ship Providence Foundation. My Dad was a plank owner of that ship and it has been so sad to see her fall into such disrepair. She looks great and it's wonderful to see her come alive again.
