Tall Ship to visit Hamilton this Sunday

SSV Oliver Hazard Perry

American Tall Ship SSV Oliver Hazard Perry is expected to make its maiden voyage to Bermuda this weekend, arriving in port on Sunday.

The 200ft sailing school vessel, named after US Navy Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry who defeated the British in the battle of Lake Eire, is Rhode Island’s Official Sailing Education Vessel and the largest of its kind built in the US in more than 100 years.

The three-masted ship is sailing to Hamilton as part of a partnership with Ocean Navigation magazine, teaching those on board about offshore celestial navigation and marine meteorology.

Oliver Hazard Perry is set to remain in port for four days.
